Delicious hot chili chicken noodles tossed in an easy, flavorful meat sauce. These sweet & spicy chicken noodles are packed with protein and seriously better than takeout! Top your bowl with fresh basil, roasted nuts and red pepper flakes for an extra kick of heat.
While the sauce cooks, you can make your pasta: cook pasta until al dente according to directions on the package. Once pasta is done, drain, then add back to the pot with the meat sauce (once it is done cooking!) and stir well to allow the meat to coat the noodles. Divide noodles into bowls and garnish with LOTS of basil ribbons, chopped cashews/peanuts extra red pepper flakes, if desired. Serves 4.
*Feel free to omit the nuts to keep the dish nut free.
To make vegetarian/vegan: feel free to use crumbled tofu in place of the ground chicken in this recipe.
To make gluten free: use your favorite gluten free noodles or gluten free stir fry rice noodles.
How to store: store any leftover spicy chicken noodles in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days. To reheat simply do so in a microwave safe dish.
