  • Test Kitchen tips This recipe can be made with angel hair pasta or thin spaghetti. Cook according to package directions for al dente, rinse with cold water, then drain. Add to the chicken mixture as directed. These noodles are lightly coated with sauce. For more peanut flavor or creamier sauce, increase the peanut butter by 1 to 2 tablespoons. If you don't have molasses, the same amount of honey or brown sugar can be used instead.
