Sauce

  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter, creamy
  • 3 Tbsp less-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)

  • Cooking spray

Coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium flame. Add chicken. Tossing occasionally, cook until done (about 5-7 minutes). Place chicken in a large mixing bowl. Reheat skillet and add grated pineapple-vegetable mixture; simmer about 5-10 minutes. (Add a bit of water, if needed.) Add cooked pineapple-vegetable mix, noodles and sauce to mixing bowl with chicken; toss until coated. To serve, divide into 4 noodle bowls.
