Chicken Pad Thai is one of my favorite Asian Meals. It’s got pieces of chicken tossed and stir fried with rice noodles in a tangy, sweet, and savory sauce. Pleasing to any palate.

  1. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and toss into a wok (that has a bit of oil in it) over medium heat.

  6. Pour more of your sauce (1/4 bottle) onto the chicken and noodles and stir them around.
  7. Now make a hole in the middle of the pan by pushing the chicken and noodles to the edges. Add more oil and crack your two eggs into the middle to cook.
  8. Once they start to cook (turn white) mix everything together again.

  10. Add more oil if it gets sticky.

Tips & Tricks:

  • If you don’t have a wok, you can pick one up pretty cheap; or use a large frying pan.
  • If you’re feeling rushed or stressed turn the heat down and cook it low and slow.
  • Add more or less sauce depending on how you like it to taste.
