  • 6 oz uncooked fettuccine
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 package (14 oz) chicken breast tenders (not breaded), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium bell peppers (any color), cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 4 medium green onions, chopped (1/4 cup)

    Meanwhile, in 12-inch wok or nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until no longer pink in center. Add bell peppers; cook 3 to 4 minutes longer, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender. Reduce heat to low.
  • 3
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave peanut butter on High 30 seconds to soften. Stir in soy sauce and water with whisk until smooth.
  • 4
    Add cooked fettuccine and peanut sauce to skillet with chicken and bell peppers. Cook and stir until hot. Garnish with onions.

  • Finish off this stir-fry by sprinkling with 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seed.
  • Sesame oil has a nutty flavor and is a key ingredient in Asian cooking. It has a high smoking point, making it well suited for stir-fry cooking.
  • Linguine can be used instead of fettuccine.
