Ingredients

  • 6 ounces linguine
  • 1 cups snow peas
  • 1 cup cooked chicken strips I like to use part of a rotisserie chicken, or season breasts that I have grilled beforehand
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh pineapple or one 8-ounce can pineapple chunks drained
  • ¼ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice or lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 clove garlic minced

Instructions

  • Cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Place the snow peas and chicken in a large colander. Pour hot cooking liquid from pasta over pea pods and chicken in colander; drain well.
  • Return pasta, pea pods, and chicken to the hot pan. Add pineapple.
  • Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small saucepan stir chicken broth into peanut butter.
  • Heat and stir with a whisk until peanut butter melts. Stir in soy sauce, lime juice, red pepper, and garlic; heat through.
