Very nice! I used about 4oz noodles (half a pack) because we like more veggies that noodles. It is very good and I actually get something similar at a local Thai restaurant in St. Louis. I added some bamboo shoots, baby corn, sliced mushrooms and snow peas. I really like this!!! NOTE: I liked this better warmish than cold. . .to each his own! Made for ZWT6.

This is outstanding! Makes a delicious hot summer evening meal. I used the other white meat, pork, in place of the chicken. The carrots were shredded and I did use the suggested seedless cucumber for the water chestnuts. The only thing I might add next time would be some sliced mushrooms. Not having the Thai sweet chili sauce, I made my own using Linda's Thai Sweet Chili Sauce for Dipping (Egg Rolls, Sushi). Made for *ZWT 2008*
