This is a two pot meal.
Chicken, Frozen, Pre-cooked, 1 lb. (I like the grilled strips of chicken breast)
Soy Sauce, 1/4 cup
Peanut Butter, 1/4 cup (your choice, creamy or chunky)
Ground Ginger, 1/4 teaspoon
Garlic Powder, 1/4 teaspoon
Red Pepper, Crushed Flakes, 1/8 (more if you like it hot)
Spaghetti, Thin, 8 oz.
Vegetable Oil, 2 tablespoons
Cucumber, Chopped, 1 (I usually peel them)
In one pot, start cooking the chicken in the vegetable oil. Add the soy sauce, peanut butter, ginger, garlic pepper, and red pepper flakes. In the other pot, cook the thin spaghetti according to package directions. When the noodles are ready, strain the pasta water into your waste water container. Mix the drained pasta with the chicken and peanut sauce. Add the cucumber.
Uncooked chicken can be used instead of frozen. You just have to cook the chicken longer. And have it earlier in the patrol since there’s a concern of raw chicken spoiling in the cooler before too many days go by on the river. For those who want a meatless dish, omit the chicken or substitute tofu for the chicken.
Servings? Like usual, two hungry river rangers will finish this off. The rare leftovers make a great snack.
