Pad Thai With Chicken and Shrimp

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Brenda.

Thailand’s most famous noodle dish. This dish comes together quickly, so it's handy to have the ingredients prepped and ready before you begin. I don't care for cilantro so I leave it out, but I posted the recipe as it was written.

This was a nice pad thai recipe and was easy to make as a weeknight meal. I liked that the prep was minimal and how quickly the dish came together. We made the recipe without altering it and I liked the chicken and shrimp combination. We always use low sodium soy sauce so saltiness was not an issue in our dish as mentioned by another reviewer. DH and I both thought the dish could use a little more kick; though all in all, we both liked it. Thanks for a nice dinner.
