Peanut Chicken Pasta with Fresh Vegetables

Here is another of my short cut recipes. (as in full of flavor but short on time) This time I am using a great time saver from A Taste of Thai – their peanut sauce mix.

Thai Peanut chicken with fresh vegetablesThis mix makes great tasting stir fries, is super on baked chicken and can be used in a host of other ways too.  Today I am using it to make a Thai peanut chicken pasta dish with fresh vegetables.  You can find this mix in the Oriental aisles of most supermarkets. And the mix is gluten free as well!

Thai peanut sauce mixThis dish could not be easier to make. And even though it has a premade sauce mix, it is just full of fresh ingredients to make sure that the taste and healthy part of it is great.

lots of fresh ingredients for chicken peanut pastaIt takes about the same time as a normal stir fry and uses coconut milk to add a bit more flavor and some creaminess.  I use the lite version of the coconut mix and it’s still very tasty. First just sauteed my onions, celery and peppers in a bit of olive oil to soften them.  You can brown the chicken a bit too if you want.

Vegetables for peanut chickenInstead of using a normal stir fry method to finish the recipe, this dish has everything simmered in the delicious coconut milk.  Linguine is my choice of pasta for this dish.

Simmer your vegetables and chicken in coconut milkNormally, I like to blend spices to make my recipes and stay away from convenience foods, but on busy nights, why spend a lot of time combining spices, when you can use this short cut mix and end up with a ton of flavor?

My husband loves all the dishes I make this way.  I honestly can’t remember the last time he raved so much about one of my recipes.  Guess I will be making this again!
