Directions

  1. Fill a large sauce pan 3/4th of the way full with water and place the pan on the stove, set at medium-high heat to bring the water to a boil.
  2. While the water is coming to a boil, thinly slice 2 medium carrots. Place the carrots in a microwave safe dish with 2 tbsp. of water and 1 tbsp. of reduced sodium soy sauce. Cover and microwave on high for 4 minutes until they are crunchy tender, and then set aside to cool.
  3. Add 8 oz. of whole grain egg noodles to the boiling water and cook them according to the package directions.
  4. While the carrots and noodles are cooking, dice a small red onion and place in a large sized bowl. Add 1 diced and seeded large cucumber, 1/4th cup of chopped fresh cilantro, 1/4th cup of chopped fresh mint, 1- 14 oz. can of baby corn (drained), and 12 oz. of cooked chicken, shredded.
  5. Once the noodles are cooked, drain them in the sink and run cold water over them. Let them finish cooling in the sink.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together 1/3 cup of sweet chili sauce, 1/3 cup of lime juice, 1 tbsp. of reduced sodium soy sauce, and 1 ½ tsp. of powdered ginger spice. Mix well with a fork.
  7. Once cooled, add the noodles and carrots to the chicken mixture and gently toss. Pour the sweet chili mixture into the bowl and gently toss again.
  8. Place ¾ cup of roasted peanuts (unsalted) in a sandwich bag and close the bag tightly being sure there is no trapped air. Using the bottom of a frying pan, pound the bag until the peanuts are coarsely broken.
  9. Serve each plate with 1/4th of the noodle mixture topped with 1/4th of the chopped peanuts.
