Thai Linguine

We have enjoyed this Thai dish several times over the past few months.  I think you will too!

  • 12 ounces linguine
  • 1 pound chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 4 tablespoons oriental sesame oil, divided use
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 cup thinly sliced red peppers
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar (or use white vinegar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth

  1. Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to bite. Drain. Transfer pasta to large bowl; add 2 tablespoons sesame oil and toss to coat.
  2. Heat remaining 2 tablespoon oil in heavy large skillet over medium heat.  
  3. Stir fry chicken pieces and remove to separate plate.
  4. Add green onions, garlic, and ginger and red peppers; saute until red peppers soften, about 2 minutes. 
  5. Add honey, peanut butter, soy sauce, vinegar, chicken broth and pepper flakes; whisk to blend. 
  6. Simmer sauce for several minutes.
    Pour over pasta and toss to coat. 
  7. Transfer to platter; sprinkle with remaining green onions.


  1. Yum - that sounds wonderful on a snowy stormy day! We love stir fry over here .... Have a wonderful week Judy!

  2. Thank you, Judy. You have just solved the "what's for dinner" question here. Off to take the chicken breasts out of the freezer now.

  3. Saved this recipe, sounds like a keeper. Thanks. LJ

  4. Add some chopped cilantro and you will be in heaven!

  5. How many people does this serve?

  6. This looks yummy. Do you think I should double it for 10 adults. irene klassen

    1. Yes, Irene...then you have plenty and you have leftovers....YUM!!!

  7. This recipe was amazing! The only thing that I did different, was I substituted olive oil instead of sesame, because that is what I had on hand. Next time, I would make be more careful to not overcook the chicken. It served three of us (with no other side dishes) and we all had seconds. My family said that it tasted like Wok Box Singapore Cashew Chicken! Mennonite Girls Can Wok!
