“Like a thai peanut chicken, but with less noodles and added cabbage. I used rice noodles for my friends with wheat allergies, and served it with Archer Farms Hot Chili pineapple grilling sauce (from Target) and pickled ginger on the side. I doubled it and served to friends for lunch. From SB Diet Quick and Easy Meals, Phase 2 recipe”
