Thai Peanut Noodles with Chicken

Tonight's Dinner was inspired by Eat Yourself Skinny.  Made the recipe with few changes.  My son loved it.  Here is my version:

1/2 bag rice noodles
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp reduced-fat peanut butter
1 tsp Sambal Oelek
2 tsp sesame oil
2 breasts chicken
1/2 broccoli
12 sugar snap peas
1 carrot, sliced really thin (use a mandoline)
1 red pepper, sliced
1/4 cup scallions, sliced 
cilantro, chopped (to garnish)
green onions, diced (to garnish)
peanuts (to garnish)

Cook rice noodles according to package directions.  

Prepare the sauce:  mix the peanut butter, soya sauce, lime juice and Sambal Oelek together.  Reserve.

In a wok, warm the sesame oil.  Add chicken and sauté until no longer pink.  Cut in pieces.  In the same wok add 1/2 cup water and all the vegetables.  Bring to boil and reduce to medium.  Add the chicken and cook another 10 min.  Mix in the sauce and stir well.

To serve:  You can mix the rice noodles directly into the wok or place the noodles in a plate, add the chicken with vegetables and garnish with cilantro, green onions and peanuts.
