Directions

  1. Bring a large pot with lightly salted water to a rolling boil. Drop the udon in a few noodles at a time and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain; return to the pot.
  2. While the udon noodles are cooking, whisk the chicken broth, ginger, soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, chile oil, and garlic in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, whisking until the peanut butter has melted. Pour the sauce over the noodles. Add the chicken and red bell pepper; toss until the noodles are evenly coated in the sauce. Sprinkle with green onions, chopped peanuts, and cilantro to serve.

DELICIOUS! I substituted sesame oil for the chile oil and used Sriracha hot chile sauce to finish for heat. The amount of sauce for the udon noodles was a little short. Next time I will make 1 1/2 times the amount of sauce.

This was okay, maybe I just didnt like the overwhelming amount of peanutbutter in it. I tasted the sauce before I put it on the noodles and it was way too nutty for my taste, but it tasted a LOT better with the chicken and the noodles.

This is really good and super easy for a weeknight dinner! I followed the recipe as written, except I doubled the recipe, used the juice from the rotisserie chicken in place of 1/2 the broth, and added a little sesame oil. Not too spicy - heat lovers may want to add crushed red pepper like my guys did, but I ate it as is and it was great. Thanks for the recipe!

Made a few changes: subbed fried tofu for chicken, fresh udon instead of dried, no peanuts or cilantro, and added a bit more peanut butter to the sauce. It was very tasty and rich.

Absolutley delicious! My local co-op has a deli item like this that I wanted to recreate at home. I loved being able to add lots of veggies. I sauteed red pepper, pea pods and green onion in a little sesame oil to crisp-tender before adding at the end. Also, chunky pb did the trick and I didn't need additional peanuts. I think I will reduce the ginger to 1 TBSP next time. I didn't use chicken...marinated tofu would be great in this, though.

I received rave reviews from family and friends and it's so quick and easy to make! I use a nice big pan and mix everything (except toppings) into the sauce in the pan. Add a little extra stock if it's too dry. To save time, I doubled the peanut butter (crunchy, natural peanut butter from the health shop) and left out the peanuts at the end, as recommended by some reviewers. 2 handfuls of snow peas, rinsed in boiling water and cut into strips, make a delicious addition. If you don't have a roast chicken, use 4 chicken breasts - fry in the pan before making the sauce, remove, slice and add at the end.

lovely! my boyfriend and i ate it right up! i poached 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and shredded them in place of rotisserie chicken. Also, used a little sesame oil and about a tablespoon of crushed red pepper. Delicious!

This was actually pretty good. I did not have fresh ginger, so I substituted powdered ginger instead. I also used minced garlic (out of a jar) for a quicker recipe. This was quick, yummy, and delicious. The only thing I will do different next time is use less soy sauce. It came out kind of salty. Only my opinion though. Thanks! :)
