Easy Thai Noodles

Hi everyone! It’s Jodi from 5 Boys Baker and I today I’m sharing this Easy Thai Noodles recipe that is a simple, delicious meal that can easily be done in about 20 minutes. I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of quick and delicious meals. Noodles tossed in a sweet and slightly spicy sauce combined with fresh veggies and honey roasted peanuts. Dinners don’t get much easier than these Easy Thai Noodles.

I’m not sure how truly authentic this Thai-inspired dish is, but I am sure that is super simple and delicious and gets devoured whenever I make it.

Thai Noodles

I’ve mentioned before that I have a couple picky eaters around my house (ahem Parker & Braydon), so when I can get them to eat and like something different I feel like I’ve conquered the world. Parker devoured these noodles and even asked for seconds. 

Adding chicken to this dish is purely optional, but I always put it in. A Rotisserie chicken is my go-to for this, but grilled chicken would be equally delicious.

I love the crunch of the fresh veggies and the honey roasted peanuts. I saw several similar recipes online that called for unsalted peanuts, but trust me on this one and use honey roasted peanuts. You will be so glad you did. Everything about this is so good. I hope you give this a try.

  • 5 ounces linguini noodles
  • 1 cup bagged coleslaw mix
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup chopped honey roasted peanuts
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken optional, but highly recommended
  • Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes or more if you want it more spicy


  • Cook linguini noodles according to package instructions. Drain when done cooking.
  • While noodles are cooking whisk together in a small bowl the soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, garlic and red pepper flakes.
  • Pour sauce onto drained noodles and toss together. Add shredded cabbage, shredded carrots and shredded cilantro to noodle mixture and mix. Then gently stir in half of chopped cilantro, green onions and peanuts, reserving the other half for garnish. (Add the shredded rotisserie now, if using.)
  • Serve warm or cold and garnish with remaining cilantro, green onions and chopped peanuts.


This recipe makes about 3 to 4 servings (not huge portions). You can easily double this if you want more. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator and eat cold or reheat in the microwave and garnish with desired toppings.

  1. These look so fresh and tasty! I always wonder what type of noodles to use and where to get them. You just use regular linguini? Mind blown! I’m trying this!

    i love the both the ease of making this recipe and how tasty it is! I enjoy making this for lunch and have been happy to recommend it to my co-workers.

  3. Can I use ramen noodles instead of linguine noodles or do you suggest using the linguine instead? I’m anxious to try this for dinner tonight!!

    We tried this dish last night. OMG! it was excellent. We made double the recipe, except my daughter forgot to double the sauce. it is definitely worth trying.

    I never comment on recipes but this was amazing, I added a splash or two of lime juice at the end cause I thought it needed a bit of acid and that really punched up the flavor. My son has a peanut allergy so we used chopped cashews on top which was fantastic. THis will definitely be a weekly recipe for my family.
