If you're hunting for a great peanut-chicken noodle dish, this is the one! It's our family's new go-to dish. I used reviewers' suggestions for using rotisserie chicken, adding veggies (shredded carrots and sugar snap peas) and topping with crushed peanuts. My 7-year-old isn't down with spice, but he's fine with the amount of red pepper flakes the recipe calls for - glad I didn't decrease. Straight soba noodles worked great, I cooked mine in chicken broth for added flavor. Could have added more chicken and way more veggies, especially red bell pepper strips. My rotisserie chicken was a little dry, it turned out fine but next time I may slow-cooker the chicken with hoisin, broth, etc. Delicious as is, though!
