A delicious and nutritious peanut pasta. Very easy to make, quick to put together, a favorite recipe of mine. I often find myself making a double batch and saving the rest in the fridge. Wonderful cold for breakfast or hot as leftovers!
½ a box of bowtie pasta
2 thawed chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
2 large carrots grated
6 baby carrots grated
2 cups of broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
1 medium onion, cut into small pieces and caramelized
2 T smooth peanut butter
2 T "lite" coconut milk
1 T lime juice
2 t soy sauce
1 t brown sugar
½ t crushed red pepper flakes

Cook the pasta until desired doneness.
Caramelize the onions and cook the chicken.
Drain the pasta and put it back into the pot. Add the chicken, onions, carrots and broccoli into the pot with the pasta.
As the pasta and chicken are cooking, you will have enough time to throw together the sauce. Whisk the peanut butter, coconut milk, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar and crushed red pepper until smooth.
Mix the sauce into the pasta chicken mixture. Keep it covered until served so it stays warm.
