Chicken Dan-Dan

This was another delicious cooking adventure, I'm starting to realize I am a huge fan of mixing the following things: ginger, garlic, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil and coconut aminos and you get GOLD flavors!  A little peanut butter never hurts either  . . . YUM!

This is great dish to consume post workout due to the heavy amount of carbs in the noodles or try prepping the dish separately (like i did) and you will have more control of the carbs in the dish so you can eat it with just the chicken and veggies if it's a rest day or throw the noodles on there if its been an active day for you.
