Spicy Thai Chicken & Noodles

The last few months have been crazy busy with school, finals, and more schoolwork. I’m so excited for a 3 month break from school. Granted, I’ll be working a couple of legal jobs, but at least I don’t have any tests or homework!

I love this recipe because it’s so fast, the leftovers are great for lunch the following day, and it’s delicious! I found the original recipe here, http://asmallsnippet.com/2011/03/spicy-thai-noodles.html several years ago when I was in college and I’ve made a few tweaks in attempt to make it a little healthier.

Enjoy!
