1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
4 tsp sriracha Asian hot chili sauce
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
12-oz uncooked multigrain spaghetti
1 lb lean ground chicken
1 1/2 cups julienned carrots
1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup finely chopped unsalted peanuts
4 green onions, chopped
In a small bowl, whisk the first 6 ingredients until blended.
Cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain.
In a large skillet, cook the chicken, carrots, red pepper and garlic over medium heat 5 to 6 minutes until chicken is no longer pink, breaking up chicken into crumbles; drain.
Stir the peanut butter mixture into the chicken mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered 3 to 5 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened.
