1 Prepare the ingredients & make the glaze

Remove the noodles from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers. Halve lengthwise; remove the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Cut off and discard the root ends of the bok choy, then roughly chop. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, peanut butter spread, soy glaze, vinegar, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be.

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.
