Sesame Chicken and Noodles-CHRISTY

8 oz. uncooked spaghetti
1/2 cup fat-free, less sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup natural-style, reduced fat creamy peanut butter (I use Smuckers)
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, divided
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (it DOES NOT make the dish spicy)
2 teaspoons canola or vegetable oil
3/4 pound chicken breast tenders, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 tablespoon salt
2 cups matchstick carrots, chopped
1 bunch of green onions thinly sliced

Cook pasta omitting salt and drain.
Combine broth, peanut butter, 1 1/2 tablespoons sesame seeds, and next five ingredents.
Heat oil in a large skillet over med high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with salt. Add chicken to pan, saute three minutes. Add carrots and onions, saute two minutes or until chicken is done. Stir in broth mixture.
Add pasta to pan, tossing to coat. Top with remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

Serves Four.
