Recipe by LifeIsGood
I found this recipe at recipegoldmine and then adapted it slightly. We love pad thai. Especially with chicken AND shrimp! I did change the sauce recipe they had posted with one of my favorite combinations. I hope you enjoy!

I followed this recipe exactly, except for not having bean sprouts (and not looking before I made the recipe) or limes. Assembled all the ingredients, and then this meal was prepared in a flash, we loved it, glad top say it was a huge success.
