Hold on to your tastebuds! This is SUCH an easy and delicious peanut sauce! For this dish’s protein, Tonia simply picked up a frozen bag of faux chick’n patties and threw them in her air fryer! The rice noodles were so easy too but feel free to try this sauce on actual rice. It’s so good that way.  This sauce goes great with the frozen peas and carrots but you could try your favorite vegetable too! Another great thing about this dish is that you probably have everything you need at home already to make this sauce.  So give it a try!
