FabSugar just got back from an amazing trip to Thailand, but now she's feeling a little blue about returning to her daily routine. To ease the culture shock, I suggested she make this simple, Thai-inspired dish for dinner. Seared chicken is tossed with pasta, broccolini, red peppers, and a store-bought peanut sauce. To make it more fit-friendly, use whole-wheat pasta. If you dislike broccolini or red pepper, feel free to swap in carrots, mini corn, bok choy, or peas. To make this scrumptious pasta, read more.
