My take on take out

Tonight we decided to make our own Chinese take out...and it was delicious. Scott gives it 4.5 out of 5 stars, and said he'd give it 5 if there were more water chesnuts.

Crista's Chinese Chicken Lo Mein

4 servings

2 3oz. Ramen Noodle Packets (discard seasoning mix)
1/4 cup Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pkg. (16 oz.) frozen stirfry veggies
1/2 cup fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 Tbsp. peanut butter
1/4 cup lite soy sauce
2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
2 Tbsp. chopped peanuts

Heat dressing in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat, add red pepper flakes. Next add chicken and garlic; stir-fry 3 min. or until chicken is no longer pink. Add frozen veggies, broth and peanut butter; stir-fry an additional 3 to 4 min. or until chicken is cooked through.
Cook and drain ramen noodles; add to skillet. Add soy sauce; mix everything well. Spoon onto serving platter; sprinkle with cilantro and peanuts.
