Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta? Pinoy Style
Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta? Pinoy Style. A lot of friends are asking for a better recipe of Yellow Cab Pizza’s Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta. To be honest I am not really a fan of the Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta but because of the insistent request by friends, and for some reasons this pasta dish has hit most Pinoy. Also at one time Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta it is included in the dish served some of the party that you have attended. During these last several days I revisited our local Yellow Cab Pizza restaurant and tried to dissect the pasta dish. As I have stated above I am not a fan of the pasta dish for the reasons that it is swimming with oil, salty and I do not fancy peanuts in my noodles. To those who have not tried Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta, it is an acquired taste in addition to the above it also spicy.

Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta

Okey without further ado here is a very simple version of Yellow Cab Pizza’s Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta that I have created. Remember this is my first try but everyone thinks it is even better. For the ingredients I just used those popular bottled Lee Kum Kee sauces which is most likely available where ever you are. In addition I also used a good some peanut butter besides the roasted peanuts for an added nuttiness of the dish. One thing to remember should your tolerance to spicy food is less, then reduce the amount of the chili garlic sauce.
