Yes it's a spice.  You might have seen it on the table in pizza restaurants in a shaker.  Dry red flakes with the seeds mixed in.

Made this without chicken and added lots of veggies - broccoli, red bell peppers, onions, snow peas, edamame.

Will definitely make again

I really liked this dish.  I made it exactly as directed and it was good but bland.  So I added salt and pepper and it really came alive.  I think next time I'll add some broccoli and red peppers to alter the balance and make it a less noodley

Didn't change anything about this recipe at all. Followed it to a T....and it tastes awesome... not too salty...not too sweet...and good amount of spice...I got hiccups, so its definitely spicy.. I don't understand why some reviews say it's either too sweet or not spicy enough.. they must have done something wrong.. crushed red pepper is very spicy...so I loved it!.. Kinda reminded me of some thai noodles I had in the past... 

Great :)

I made this dish tonight and used almond butter instead of peanut and used coconut sugar, 1 tbsp, instead of honey.  It was wonderful.  Will definitely make it again.

I made several changes to the recipe, following other reviewers' comments. I bought a stirfry veggie mix and steamed the vegetables to mix in. I cooked the soba noodles (yum!) in the chicken stock left from the chicken. And I added a bit more red pepper and only half the honey. It came out delicious, if I do say so myself! The amount of the sauce may be a tiny bit too small, but that is because I added a lot of veggies and I like a lot of sauce. I will definitely be making this again the next time I'm craving peanut sauce.

I REALLY liked this recipe as a starting off point! My only dislike was that for my personal preference the sauce was too sweet as written in the recipe (and not from my peanut butter since I used the fresh ground peanut butter from the market with no sugar) so I added a bit more soy sauce & then a bit more peanut butter to create the proper thickness again. Other than that it was awesome. I prefer more vegetables in my meals and I wanted t make this a one dish so I added julienne cucumbers & red bell peppers with the carrots as well as a generous amount of cilantro to the green onion & peanut garnish.

Tasty dish! Loved the peanutty flavored to the sauce, accentuated by the crunch of the peanuts on top. The sauce was a little too sticky/dry, but still great, so I'd just a bit more broth. Served with broccoli, which I think I'll just stir into the noodles next time.
