My favorite thing about this Thai Chicken Pasta is it has an ample amount of sauce for maximum flavor. The noodles are swimming in sauce.

To make this dish quickly and efficiently, bring a pot of water to a boil to cook the linguine.

Meanwhile, combine all the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and simmer for 1 minute. Set the sauce aside while you cook the chicken. The sauce is a delicious mixture of peanut butter, hoisin sauce, honey, soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger, and red pepper flakes. It’s a whole lot of ingredients and they really pack the flavor.

Next chop two chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and cook in vegetable oil until browned and cooked through. Add the carrots the last minute or so of cooking the chicken so they get a little soft.

To finish, toss the noodles, sauce, and chicken together in a bowl. So easy! Sprinkle with green onions, peanuts, and cilantro on top and dish it up.
