Chicken Pad Thai. Using a sweet and sour homemade Pad Thai sauce, you can prepare these mouthwatering stir-fried Thai noodles in no time. So delicious that you won’t need another takeout in your life!
Thai stir-fried rice noodles, known as “Pad Thai,” are very popular in Thailand. Pad literally translates to “Thai stir-fry.”
In Thailand, you may have it from food carts and sit-down establishments alike. The most popular Pad Thai dish is Chicken Pad Thai, which is a favorite of mine because it has chicken in it. Who doesn’t love chicken?
This Pad Thai sauce is prepared from pantry staples, so you won’t have a hard time finding it in an Asian or Thai market.
Pad Thai Noodles:
There is a plethora of Asian noodle options available, which can be overwhelming. Still, I recommend the Packaged Dry Skinny Rice Sticks. These are ideal for Pad Thai.
The noodles should be about 1/10 inches wide. A 3/8-inch-wide Dry Wide Rice Sticks is also available for purchase. Either one will work, but the thinner version is preferable.
Chicken Pad Thai is a crowd-pleasing dish that’s quick to cook together at home. Each serving of this recipe contains only 604 calories.
