Description

Easy and delicious pad thai recipe. The peanut sauce MAKES this dish! You can make it as spicy or mild as you like!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE DISH:
  • 1 package Pad Thai Rice Sticks, 8 0z
  • 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Or Canola Oil
  • 3 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast, Cubed
  • 2 Tablespoons Minced Garlic
  • 1 whole Medium Yellow Onion, Sliced
  • 1 whole Colored Pepper Of Your Choice, Sliced
  • 1 cup Shredded Carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons Ginger Paste
  • 1 cup Bean Sprouts
  • 1 dash Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch Green Onions, Chopped For Garnish
  • _____
  • FOR THE SAUCE:
  • 2 teaspoons Hoisin Sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons Peanut Butter, Crunchy Or Creamy
  • 3 Tablespoons Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce

Preparation

Soak the pad thai rice sticks in warm for 45 minutes.

For the sauce, mix the hoisin, peanut butter, soy sauce and sriracha (we like spicy, so I used roughly a tablespoon) to form a paste. Set aside.

When the noodles are done soaking, drain water and set aside.

Heat the oil in a wok over HIGH heat for about 2 minutes. Add the chicken and garlic, cook for 2-3 minutes then add the onion, bell peppper, carrots and ginger paste. If you are using fresh bean sprouts, put them in as well, if using canned, you will add them in the end. Stir well, put on the cover and continue cooking until the chicken and vegetables are done, about 5 minutes. Fold in the noodles, paste/sauce and bean sprouts (if using canned). Cook for an additional 2 minutes.

Serve in bowls and garnish with chopped green onions and extra siracha sauce if you dare!!

NOTE:
If you can’t find pad thai noodles, cooked linguini noodles will do just fine!

This dish did not turn out the way we had hoped. The sauce was too sweet and lacked the authentic Thai flavor. I think the next Pad Thai recipe I will try will have to be a fish sauce one unfortunately.

Very good. I thought the recipe could have made a little bit more sauce, but everything tasted really good!

I loved this recipe. It was easy to make. Once I bought all of the ingredients I could use them over and over. I’ve made this dish about 5 times now using the same ginger paste, sriracha, etc. Spicy Pad Thai has always been a regular on my Thai restaurant rotation. Now that I know how quick, easy, and inexpensive it is to make at home, I won’t be ordering it out anymore. :)

We love Thai and we loved this recipe. I accidently added two tablespoons of the hot sauce instead of one, but it was a heat level we enjoy. There were no leftovers!

We loved this recipe! Awesome Pad Thai without having to buy fish sauce. I used chicken thighs instead of breasts, and they were a tasty sub.
