Chicken Pad Thai


A recipe that combines sweet, salty, sour and spicy, Pad Thai is a delicious Thai noodle dish that you will want daily!

Today we’re gonna make Chicken Pad Thai, but you can substitute shrimp or beef or tofu … so make it how you want! Same goes for how spicy you like it. Always feel free to add more or less chili sauce so it’s the way you want it to be.

Okay, let’s see how this is done!


For this dish, you’ll need:

  • 1 lb chicken breast, boneless & skinless
  • 1 cup chopped green onion
  • 1 pkg (454 ml) dry rice noodles
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp chili sauce
  • 75 ml fish sauce
  • 1 egg
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 2 limes (or equivalent amount of juice)
  • 1 cup crushed peanuts (approx.)


First step is to soak the rice noodles in warm water. We don’t cook them for this! Make sure your bowl is big enough … this one wasn’t


Okay, this one will work!

Pour water to cover and let them soak for about half an hour, until they are soft


Disaster averted, let’s make our sauce!

g1 sugar

Pour sugar in a medium size mixing bowl


Add your chili sauce (you can find this in the grocery where Asian foods are)


Add the fish sauce (also at the grocery, right near the chili sauce usually). Do you smell that pungent fish sauce? I’m sure you recognize that smell from going to Thai restaurants!


Add 125 ml of water to this mixture


Squeeze in that fresh lime


Two limes should be enough!


Now stir it all together and put aside


Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Do you still have all your fingertips? If you answered yes, move on to the next step!


Add vegetable oil to a wok (or large skillet) and put the heat at medium-high

Add garlic and chicken to the heated oil

Stir fry until chicken is no longer pink


Add the sauce and let it boil for a few minutes

Get an egg and lightly beat in a small dish


Add the egg


Stir until sauce starts to thicken

Add onion and cilantro


Mix well

Now, go get drain those noodles and bring them over!


Add the noodles to the wok


and mix it all together


This looks pretty good!


just a little bit more …


Place into bowls and top with some fresh cilantro sprigs and chopped peanuts


Add as much as you like!



There you have it, sweet and spicy Chicken Pad Thai ready to eat!



Bon Apetit!
