    boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in thin strips
    1⁄4 cup
    peanut butter
    2 tablespoons
    soy sauce
    1⁄2 cup
    water
    1 teaspoon

    I love this recipe! I would suggest using crunchy peanut butter!

    LOVE!!!  So great tasting, quick to make, and adaptable - we made it vegetarian!  One change we made was to use Udon noodles instead of ramen (they are located often near the tofu in grocery stores in the produce section) which are thicker, fresh noodles.  We used 2 packets which was the same ounces as it called for of tofu.  And we pre-cooked them just as it said to do with the Ramen.  Also we did top the recipe upon serving with hot chili sauce and then our family favs "seaweed sprinkles" which can be found at Asian market (we use furikake brand which is marketed as "rice seasoning").  I also don't like cooked carrots so instead of them we used the same amount of broccoli.  In the end the dish tasted a bit like Pad Thai which made me think you could cook an egg scrambled into it and even top with some crushed peanuts.  Oh, and we used extra-firm tofu instead of chicken, one container of it.
