  4. Pour sauce, along with remaining 1.5 cups broth into Instant Pot and mix everything up really well, ensuring sauce covers all the noodles and vegetables.

You can sub sweet potato or squash noodles for carrot noodles.

Noodles will absorb sauce as it sits and especially when refrigerated.

Eat the leftovers warm or cold!

To make this on the stovetop, cook the chicken and veggie noodles in a large pot. Cook the rice noodles in a separate pot and add them to the chicken mixture. In a bowl, mix together soy sauce, peanut butter, garlic, ginger, chili sauce and 1/2 cup -1 cup broth. Add sauce to chicken mixture and omit remaining broth.
