  2. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, chile garlic sauce, brown sugar and gingerroot with whisk. Add spinach, carrots and green onions; toss to coat.
  3. Heat bowls as directed on package. Divide spinach mixture among bowls. Divide chicken mixture among bowls; top each with peanuts and cilantro.

  • To save a little time, opt for bagged preshredded carrots.
