A Peanut Filled Recipe Newsletter
Okay, so it comes from Kraft Kitchens Canada who do make, yes, Kraft Peanut Butter. Here's a recipe for Pad Thai which I looked at and thought, okay, cool, someone could make Thai food. You still can. Adding the peanuts is optional:-
Prep Time: 10 min | Ready In: 20 min
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. minced ginger
1/2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup Kraft Catalina Dressing, divided
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup frozen cooked shrimp
1/2 pkg. rice vermicelli noodles
5 Tbsp. fish sauce
2 Thai chilies, seeded and finely chopped
1 cup each: green onion and bean sprouts
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh Cilantro
COOK garlic, ginger and chicken in 2 Tbsp. dressing in wok or large pan over high heat until cooked through. Add eggs and shrimp. Cook until egg has set.
COVER noodles with boiling water, allow to sit for 5 minutes, drain.
ADD softened noodles, remaining dressing, fish sauce, chilies, green onions, bean sprouts, water and Cilantro. Heat until warmed through, stirring often.
TOP with chopped peanuts and lime wedges if desired.
Makes: 4 servings
Cilantro Chicken Salad:-
Cilantro Chicken Salad
Prep Time: 10 min
Ready In: 10 min
1/4 cup Miracle Whip Dressing
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
2 tsp. soy sauce
2 cups chopped cooked chicken
4 cups frozen Asian-style vegetables, thawed
1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts
Combine dressing, cilantro and soy sauce.
Pour over combined chicken and vegetables in large bowl; toss to coat.
Serve sprinkled with peanuts.
I just keep thinking YUCK peanuts on chicken salad. YUCK.
Yes, I realize that peanuts are everywhere. I am not upset about receiving a recipe newsletter with two recipes with peanuts in them. I just found it odd that there were two in this one particular newsletter this week (I get it every week, I don't always open it).
And, it's quite obvious you can make both recipes without the peanuts.
As far as cilantro, I have grown it myself (for fresh salsa) and it is wonderful to grow and quite easy.
