30 Minute Peanut Sesame Noodles (with Chicken and Veggies) makes the most delicious complete meal all in one! Super quick and easy with the most velvety, creamy peanut sesame sauce you will crave for days!
I have a mad crush on peanut sauces. From my Thai Peanut Chicken Tacos (old post, terrible pics but SO Good!) to my Sticky Thai Peanut Orange Chicken, to my Thai Pineapple Peanut Chicken Satay and Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps in Pineapple Hoisin Peanut Sauce – they are some of my very favorite recipes. I guess for someone who eats peanut butter by the spoonful, it just doesn’t get much better than creamy peanut sauces steeped in Asian flavor for lunch or dinner and even leftovers for breakfast. But these Peanut Sesame Noodles aren’t just peanut noodles and they aren’t just sesame noodles either but the luxurious sauce is infused with both peanut butter and sesame seeds for a savory complimentary duo. But I’m getting ahead of myself, more on the intoxicating sauce later…
First, the stry fry. I wanted to make these Peanut Sesame Noodles a complete meal so I added stir fried chicken, bok choy, shitake mushrooms and red and orange bell peppers but feel free to swap out your favorite veggies or whatever you have on hand or simply leave them out – there is no right or wrong with these Peanut Sesame Noodles. Except not inviting them into your life. so so wrong.
But so so right is this Peanut Sesame Sauce! Many sesame noodle recipes include a splash of sesame oil with peanut butter in order to call it “sesame”, but to make truly great sesame noodles, I’ve created a blender Peanut Sesame Sauce that not only has peanut butter but actual sesame seeds (easier and cheaper than buying Tahini) along with soy sauce, mirin, oyster sauce, ginger, garlic, basil, brown sugar, and rice vinegar – so multidimensional in flavor, so cravilicious. So after you quickly stir fry your chicken and veggies, you blend your Peanut Sesame Sauce ingredients together with some water until nice and silky…
Then pour all over your noodles, chicken and veggies…
Stir all together and garnish with cilantro, crushed peanuts and sesame seeds and that’s it for quick and easy Peanut Sesame Noodles with a depth of deliciousness your whole family will swoon over in every creamy slurpercilious bite after bite after bite….
I’m still swooning….
