Recipe: Spicy Peanut Chicken Drumstricks on Soba Noodles



Spicy Peanut Sauce: (Adapted from the Spicy Peanut Sauce in Teany Book)
4 tsp Soy Sauce
4 tbsp Sriracha Sauce (has a rooster on it)
2 tbsp Creamy Peanut Butter
2 tsp Sesame oil
2 tsp rice Vinegar


Soba noodle:
Place soba noodles in boiling water for 4-5 minutes. Drain and place under cold water.

Directions:
Place chicken into oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Flip chicken over for another 30 minutes. Once the chicken is pretty much cooked, lather peanut sauce onto the chicken. Bake for another 20 minutes on each side. Serve over hot soba noodles.

This was the first time I tried my peanut butter sauce on chicken. It was actually through a conversation with a friend. He said that he usually makes spicy peanut butter wings. And we found out that we use used Sriracha sauce in both our recipes. The teany book didn't specify the type of asian chilli sauce to use. And I decided to use the rooster sauce. Woo hoo I think that means that I'm really a budding cook! :) You could try variations of the peanut sauce. I think this version may be too spicy. I tried it on a group of girlfriends once over soba noodles alone and it was way too hot for them. If you want to lessen the hottness factor add more peanut butter and soy sauce and reduce the number tablespoons of hot sauce.

hi, i guess Sriracha sauce is a must, since it's 4tbsp ? Wonder what other sauce is closest to Sriracha so that i can use the sauce many times, and not just once when i try making ur dish ? ;p
