Hey, there Love Bakes Good Cakes readers! Linda here from With A Blast and I am sharing a delicious, filling pasta dish with you today. This Chicken Fettuccini with Peanut Sauce does not really require any side dishes, but I like to always add at least a small crunchy salad.

I have to admit I was a bit stumped on ideas for a healthy dinner when Jamie at first mentioned this amazing series, seeing as I am still in the Festive season/mood, and you do not want me starting on all the dishes we have had these past few weeks. Let's see if we can change that, or at least try to cook a little healthier in 2015. Oils and salt are, of course, the biggest culprits and should be avoided or substituted whenever possible.

Avocado Oil is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which is good for you and this specific brand I am using today, is also free of any cholesterol. Both of these should be labelled on any good quality oil and it would only take you a second or two to scan the label and see which Oils are the goodies, and the ones that are really bad news for eating healthier.

With this Chicken Fettuccini with Peanut Sauce dish, I try to cut down any frying as much as I can and also use no extra Salt. Do not worry, the Sauce combination makes up more than enough for the Pasta not to taste dull. You will note that the Bell Pepper also does not get cooked in any way, which is great, no frying and no loss of necessary nutrients. Instead, the Bell Pepper gets softened by the boiled water from the Pasta, which of course adds even a little more nutrients from the Pasta {which would have gone lost if drained as usual} I hope you enjoy the recipe!

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients 
  • 250g (just over ½ lb.) Fettuccini Pasta, plain or whole wheat
  • 2 cups Roasted Chicken, skinless/boneless, cubed
  • 1 Large Red Bell Pepper, thinly sliced

  • ⅓ cup Hoisin Sauce

Instructions

1. Cook the Fettuccini as per the instructions, but omit any Salt.

2. Place the cooked, cubed Chicken in a colander with the Red Bell Pepper on top - once the Pasta is cooked, drain slowly over the Chicken/Pepper in the colander - let stand while making the sauce.

3. Heat the Oil in a medium saucepan - saute the Garlic and Ginger 1 minute - add the Water, Peanut Butter, Hoisin Sauce, Vinegar and Sriracha - stir well and let simmer a minute or two until heated through.

4. Tip over the Pasta-Pepper-Chicken into a large mixing bowl - pour over the Peanut Sauce and mix - stir in the Spring Onions, another gentle stir through and transfer to a serving dish.

5. Serve immediately with a crunchy salad on the side.

  1. Thanks Jamie & Linda for this great healthy meal idea. I have been trying to eat healthier this year. The holidays were loaded with calories and fat but not good for me or my family. YUM!
