Spicy Peanut Sweet Patoodles

Spicy Peanut Sweet Patoodles

In reality, anything with this spicy peanut sauce on it will be delicious. This sweet potato noodle stir fry, or sweet patoodles as I like it call it, is no exception. Between all the fresh & tasty veggies and some juicy chicken plus the spicy peanut sauce, you absolutely can’t go wrong!

I’ve made this recipe a few times now. Each time I’ve done something a little different as far as which veggies I’ve used and how I’ve made the chicken but I’m sharing my favorite version. The first time I cooked this up, I thought I was taking all these great pictures but when I went to download them onto my computer, they weren’t there! I had forgotten to put the memory card back in my camera. What sucks is that was definitely the best one I cooked but oh well! They all still taste & look fantastic!

I used some of the other 1/4 of the peanut sauce for my meal and saved the rest for when I ate these Spicy Peanut Sauce Sweet Patoodles again! There will be a bunch of leftovers for you to enjoy the rest of the week 🙂 I hope you enjoy as much as I did!
