Peanut Chicken over Glass Noodles (Bang Bang Chicken at Adora’s Box– due to shredding the chicken by banging it with the side of a meat cleaver) is an easy to create lunch while still having a complexity of flavor. Glass noodles don’t have much flavor on their own, but they add texture while soaking up the peanut butter dressing. Chad especially loved the dressing. There was a little leftover, so he used it on spinach salads for the rest of the week.
Glass noodles (Cellophane, Bean Thread, Crystal, Chinese Vermicelli) are a common ingredient in Asian cuisine for stir-fries, soups, salads, and even wraps. They are most often found in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, and Vietnamese cooking. Glass noodles are made from starch (mung bean, yam, or potato) and water. They do not have much favor on their own, but puck up the flavors of other ingredients in the dish. They are found in some grocery stores and most Asian food markets.
