What’s Cooking, Sweet and Spicy


Chicken and Noodles with Peanut Sauce

A quick and tasty staple on our menu with a total cooking time of around 30 minutes. Kind of like a Pad Thai, but this dish uses the Japanese Chucka Soba noodles. Again, quick and tasty and good for you, it’s Ejlicious! Enjoy and I hope you have a great week!
