Chicken Pad Thai

Recipe by Sky Hostess

This recipe is a combination of several recipes that I like - I was trying to copy a meal that is served at a restaurant here in Phoenix called Pei Wei - I think I did it! This is fabulous! Great flavor. Instead of rice noodles we used the whole wheat fettuccini noodles from Trader Joe's. An optional ingredient would be to add 1 to 2 teaspoons of curry powder also. That should be added when cooking the onion and chicken in the first step. Enjoy! For those of you have made this before I have tweeked this just a bit. I've added the vinegar in the sauce. Went back to Pei Wei and discovered it was missing vinegar! Reduced the oil and the amount of chicken as well.

Too much vinegar, soy sauce, and lime for my taste. I remade the sauce after making it as directed, but this time added only a splash of vinegar, soy sauce, and lime and was really pleased with the flavor. I will definitely make this again!
