Peanutty Chicken

Another 'fancy' name!  Only Kidding.  This is also from one of my kids cookbooks.  I've been really impressed so far with these recipe's.  They are kid friendly, the kids are able to help, and the recipe's are great for both the kids and the adults!  My kids love to help in the kitchen, and yes, it takes a little more time and patience, but they really take ownership of the meal and enjoy eating something they helped prepare.

1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
4 tbs lime juice
4 tbs coconut milk
4 tbs creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp dark sesame oil
1 lb corkscrew pasta
2-3 cups chopped or shredded cooked chicken breast
1 cup shredded carrot
3 green onions thinly sliced
1/2 cup red bell pepper
2/3 cup chopped peanuts

Whisk together the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, set aside.

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.  Drain the pasta and place in a big bowl.  Add sauce chicken, and veggies, toss gently to blend.  Sprinkle with chopped peanuts.
