I LOVE Thai food! One of my favorite dishes is Pad Thai and I have ordered it at many Thai restaurants, but it is never as good as THIS RECIPE! I feel like that sentence was somehow sacrilegious, but there it is! What can I say? This is SO DELICIOUS! It’s definitely American-Thai fusion. Thankyou to my niece Abby!

Most of the prep time is in cutting and chopping….so make it a family event!

Bring large pot of salted water to boil and cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse. 

Cut up your chicken breast into strips. 

Mix together 2T Sriracha, lime juice, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, salt and pepper. Mix with cut up chicken. Cover chicken and set aside.

Cut up broccoli and green onions. .

 Heat oil in wok and stir fry until chicken is opaque.

Add in prepared veggies and continue to stir-fry over high heat.

Stir-fry veggies for 3-5 minutes.


 Add noodles and as much sauce as desired. *I use almost all of the sauce…..the sauce is delicious!

  It is helpful to use tongs to mix together. 

Serve with chopped peanuts, cilantro leaves, bean sprouts and lime wedges. 

Pad Thai

An Americanized version for sure......but SO DELICIOUS! And easy too!
