Spicy Peanut Chicken & Noodles Tips

How can I adjust the spice level of these peanut noodles?

The heat in this dish comes from the cayenne pepper. Omit it to reduce the heat or double it for an extra dose of fiery goodness. Here's another take on peanut noodles with chicken.

What can I use for spicy peanut noodles instead of rice noodles?

You can find rice noodles in the international section of most grocery stores. If you're all out, try making these with udon, mung bean noodles or any type of egg noodles. Check out more ways to cook with rice noodles.

What else can I add to these spicy peanut noodles?

Add a little crunch with chopped peanuts on top, a sprinkling of cilantro for fresh flavor or a soft-boiled egg for richness and texture.
