Pad Thai

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by amanda l b

This is one of those recipes that may look a little daunting due to the long list of ingredients, but it's a matter of assembling everything - and then going for it! It's actually really quick - and of course - really delicious. Perfect with a glass of crisp white wine!

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.
