This delicious pad Thai recipe comes from my 'foodbank' course. Its filled with tasty veg and succulent chicken. Pad Thai is one of the most popular Thai dishes, but i never knew what went in it. This is a more basic recipe but doesn't compromise on flavor.
1 packet Pad Thai Noodles
4 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
1/4 Cup Water
4 teaspoons Sugar
2 Small Chicken Breasts
2 Garlic Cloves
1 Red Capsicum
12 Snow Peas
1/2 Packet Bean Spouts
4 Tablespoons Crushed Nuts
Coriander/Chilli to serve (optional)
Add 6 cups of boiling water to a large bowl, add noodles and soak for 5mins. Pour noodles into a strainer to drain water.
Mix fish sauce, 1/4 cup water, juice from the lime and the sugar in a small bowl. Cut chicken into small strips. Turn frying pan onto a medium heat and spray with a little oil. Cook chicken for 5mins until brown. Transfer to a plate.
Slice garlic, carrots, capsicum and snow peas into thin slices. Spray oil into a frying pan on a high heat, add vegetables and saute for 5mins. Add sauce, chicken, noodles and bean sprouts to the frying pan, mix together and turn the frying pan off. Sprinkle with nuts on top, season well and serve.
Tip: Mix together 1/4 Cup of coriander and 1 diced red chilli and sprinkle over the top for extra flavor.
