Spicy Soba Noodles with Chicken in Peanut Sauce is a quick and easy chicken dish that you can prepare in no time at all! I don’t know about you, but during the week I am so busy trying to fit in training for the mini-marathon in May, work and keeping the family together, that I do not have time to fix a time-consuming meal. This quick, easy and delicious dish comes from Cooking Light. Soba noodles are tossed with chicken, crunchy carrots, and a fiery peanut sauce.
