I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Spicy Peanut Butter Pasta Chicken
...in your mind.

Spicy Peanut Butter Pasta Chicken

Serves 4 - The beauty of this is that it can all be made in the time it takes the pasta to cook. I like to grill a piece of chicken to go with it - but you could use shrimp if you wanted or even nothing - it really is that good AND easy. Oh sure you could add things like garlic & ginger, but I don’t think you need to.


  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup chicken broth, approximately - I like the kind that comes in those little juice box things
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 big teaspoons chili paste
  • 2 chicken breasts, pounded pretty flat - about 1/4 inch
  • 1/2 pound pasta - whatever kind you like
  • For garnish - chopped peanuts and cilantro sprinkled over the top at the end


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions
  2. Drizzle chicken with a little olive oil, season with salt & pepper and grill until done - set aside and keep warm
  3. While chicken and pasta are cooking - combine pb, soy, broth and chili paste in a small saucepan over medium heat
  4. Cook until smooth and mix with pasta when ready
  5. Place sliced chicken on top of pasta, and sprinkle with chopped nuts & cilantro
