I love Pad Thai and this was my first attempt at making it at home-I was able to find the ingredients at a local Asian market. It really was easy to put together and the flavor was so good and authentic! I used chicken thighs instead of breasts. I and my family really enjoyed this and I will definitely make it again. Thanks amanda l b! I made this for Spring PAC 2009.
