Ingredients

1 (9 ounce) package dried udon noodles                                             3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup chicken broth                                                                             1 whole rotisserie chicken, skinned and boned,                                                                                                                                 meat pulled into large chunks

1 1/2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root                                            1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

3 tablespoons soy sauce                                                                         1/4 cup green onions, chopped

3 tablespoons peanut butter                                                                 1/4 cup chopped peanuts

1 1/2 tablespoons honey                                                                        1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

2 teaspoons chili oil                                                                               Add all ingredients to list

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot with lightly salted water to a rolling boil. Drop the udon in a few noodles at a time and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain; return to the pot.
  2. While the udon noodles are cooking, whisk the chicken broth, ginger, soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, chile oil, and garlic in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, whisking until the peanut butter has melted. Pour the sauce over the noodles. Add the chicken and red bell pepper; toss until the noodles are evenly coated in the sauce. Sprinkle with green onions, chopped peanuts, and cilantro to serve.
