2 TB soy sauce
1 tsp Sriracha chili sauce

1. Cook noodles in salted water.
2. Heat olive oil in pan and stir-fry chicken garlic, ginger, green onion, soy sauce, and Sriracha chili sauce.
3. In the meantime, combine chicken broth, peanut butter, chili sauce, honey, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk until smooth and remove from heat.
4. Add cooked chicken to noodles, Toss cooked noodles and chicken with sauce and divide among 4 bowls. Sprinkle with green onions, cilantro, chopped peanuts, and garnish each serving with 2 lime quarters. Before eating, squeeze lime juice over noodles and stir to combine.

*My husband loved this dish! I thought it had too much peanut butter but would make it again and not add as much peanut butter. I was not expecting the thickness of the peanut butter to be so prevelant, but I think I let it get to thick over the heat. Anyway, it was yummy and something different.
