New Recipe Night: Basil Chicken Thai Pasta

Think The Cheesecake Factory's Chicken Thai Pasta....yum, right? One of my favorite items on their gigantic menu. I never imagined that I would unknowingly recreate it (well, kinda) at home in my own kitchen!!! This is a much less spicy version (next time I will do something to change that) and oh so rich. The recipe called for Thai noodles but I switched it up to mimic TCF's recipe and used linguine instead. Easy, easy recipe...don't be intimidated by the name! By the way, you can find the Progresso Recipe Starters right next to the Progresso soup. 


*1/2 package linguine
*1 can Progresso Recipe Starters creamy parmesan-basil cooking sauce
*1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
*1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
*1 Tbsp soy sauce
*1 package uncooked chicken breast pieces for stir fry
*2 Tbsp chopped roasted peanuts
*Cilantro (optional for garnish)


1) Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain noodles; rinse with cold water. Set aside.

2) Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat cooking sauce, peanut butter, lime juice and soy sauce with whisk until smooth; set aside.

3) Spray 10-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir 4 to 5 minutes or until no longer pink in center. Add sauce mixture; heat to boiling, stirring frequently. Stir in noodles until thoroughly mixed. Sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro. Serve immediately.

Hubby approved! Baby approved!! Leftover city!!! The meal that keeps on giving! Lots of exclamation points!!!! Next time, there will be spice! Oh yeah, one more thing.....ENJOY!!!
