"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Ingredients:  
2 tbsp olive oil
2 chicken breasts, diced
4 cloves garlic minced
3 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
1/2 cup jarred pad thai sauce (I like Thai Kitchen brand)
1 1/2 cups water

1 cup Carrot matchsticks
1/2 each red and yellow pepper, sliced
4 green onions, sliced
1/3 cup chopped peanuts
1/3 cup fresh chopped cilantro

Directions:
Directions:
Add olive oil, chicken, garlic, soy sauce, pad thai sauce, water and rice noodles to Instant Pot in that order, leaving noodles floating slightly above other ingredients. Set to manual and pressure cook on high for 2 minutes. Instant Pot will take about 10 minutes to pre-heat and then 2 minutes to cook. When complete, press cancel and do a quick release of the steam, waiting until the pressure gauge drops back down and the lid is safe to open.

Add carrot matchsticks, bell peppers and half of peanuts, tossing carefully with tongs. Place lid back on and let sit for 5 minutes.

Remove lid and serve, then top with green onions, remaining chopped peanuts and cilantro. Enjoy!

Personal Notes:
Noodles tend to be undercooked. Add one minute longer or allow pressure to release naturally for a few minutes.
