Spaghetti with Spicy Oriental Sauce (Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta Copycat)

This is my husband and I’s favorite pasta of the moment. It’s spaghetti with chicken fillet, shiitake mushroom and peanuts in spicy oriental sauce. It’s from our favorite pizza store, Yellowcab Pizza Co.

It’s spicy and really tasty. Actually the first time I tasted it I thought it was too salty so we didn’t order it again for a long time (for several years actually) then when we tried again, just last year, I thought it tasted good, not too salty anymore, I’m glad they adjusted the recipe (either that, or my tolerance for high sodium food has gotten even higher..uh-oh).

Anyways, this is my attempt to copy this pasta dish at home; I have had several tries and this recipe is the closest, really close..I think.   You can try it too and see for yourself and if it’s not, well just make adjustments to your taste. 🙂


Saute garlic, onion and chicken fillet in oil..season with salt and pepper and then add the chili flakes and peanuts


add the oyster sauce mixture


..and the cooked spaghetti


The chicken, peanuts and mushrooms soaked the oyster sauce that’s why they look dark as you can see in the photo. I should have taken them right after sauteeing then just add it back again with the pasta. I didn’t think of it before but I already made the changes which I already put in the recipe below.
