Cold Chicken Satay Noodles

I just love this recipe!  Rachael Ray is big on make your own take out, and I was intrigued enough to make this recipe myself.  I just love the peanut butter in the recipe, and the hot sauce was a great addition too.  I couldn’t really taste the lime or garlic.  As for the soy sauce, it did add a nice salty flavor, which was great, but other than that, I couldn’t really taste it in the recipe.  Maybe that’s because I used soy sauce and not the Tamari that the recipe called for.

And speaking of sticking to the recipe, I realized that I didn’t have any vegetables when I went to toss them with the recipe.  It was great without them, but I think they would have added something extra.

There aren’t pictures for today, but I will have some tomorrow!  Next up?  Get ready for some browned butter peanut butter rice krispy treats!  Enjoy!
