Ingredients

    6 oz green beans, trimmed and halved lengthwise (2 cups)
    1 red bell pepper, seeds and ribs removed, thinly sliced lengthwise
    8 oz rice noodles or whole wheat pasta
    1 lb chicken breast, boneless and skinless
    1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
    1 T sugar (splenda)
    1/2 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, and sliced into bite size wedges (2 cups)
    1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped
    1/2 cup peanuts, chopped

Directions

1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook beans until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Add bell pepper, and stir to submerge. Using a small sieve, transfer vegetables to a bowl. Add noodles to boiling water, and cook until al dente according to package directions, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain, rinse thoroughly with cold water, and reserve.
2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet bring 1 cup salted water to a simmer over medium heat. Add chicken breasts; cover and cook 5 minutes. Turn off heat; let steam until chicken is cooked through, 5 to 10 minutes. When cool enough to handle, shred chicken with a fork.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, soy sauce and sugar. Add reserved vegetables and noodles, chicken, pineapple, mint and 1/4 cup peanuts; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat with dressing. Serve immediately, topped with remaining 1/4 cup peanuts.
