    Ducky's Note:

    A native Thai woman made this for a Thai cooking class. This is how she learned to make it from her mother. We tasted the dish and it was great. We did not have Pad Thai sauce with it but she said the store bought type was fine. Vegetables or tofu may be substituted for the chicken. She noted that overcooked noodles do not stir-fry well and do not look good. If using fresh noodles, instead of dried, they will cook in less than 1 minute.

      this pad thai was great! I recomend doubling the sauce (fish sauce, vin, black pepper, brown sugar., ect?) I also add red pepper flakes for heat. I didnt boil the rice noodles. What I did do is get the pot of water boiling then turned the heat down to mid low while adding the pasta. Then I stired it a few times and 10-14mins later they were done in time to be added to dish. oh and before i forget. add just a lil less vinager than it calls for. Thanks again for the recipe!

      I have made this for myself for a while and enjoyed a lot... and then I made it for my boyfriend. He asks for it once a week now, and adores the leftovers. Thanks for the recipe! I double the sauce ingredients, increase the chicken to four breasts, and use snow peas instead of beansprouts, but the rest is perfect!

      It is a great receipe. I believe when stir the bean sprouts quickly is also important because the longer the cooking time, the more water comes out and make the noodle more sticky.
