- Put a large pot of water on to boil for cooking pasta.

- Transfer the chicken to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, shred into bite-size strips.
- Whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, garlic, chilli-garlic sauce and ginger in a large bowl.

- Add vegetables and cook until the pasta and vegetables are just tender. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.
- Rinse the pasta and vegetables with cool water to refresh. Stir the reserved cooking liquid into the peanut sauce; add the pasta, vegetables and chicken; toss well to coat.

Dietitian Notes / Recipe Tips
Chilli-garlic sauce is a blend of ground chillies, garlic and vinegar and is commonly used to add heat and flavour to Asian soups, sauces and stir-fries.
It can be found in the Asian section of large supermarkets and keeps up to 1 year in the refrigerator.
