Wow, what a great recipe! I made a few substitutes based on what I had in my kitchen, but it was delicious. I used honey instead of brown sugar, about 1 Tablespoon. I also cooked lasagna noodles and sliced them crossways before tossing them with the veggies and sauce (weird, I know, but I needed to use those noodles up). Finally, I added about 1/4 cup of the cooking water from the pasta when I added the pasta. Fabulous--a definite keeper!
A great recipe for those that have never had Thai food or who like their Thai kind of bland. It was definitely good, but just not nearly as good as our local Thai restaurant makes it. I could only find the skinny rice noodles so I used those. The directions on the package were a little off and they ended up a little overcooked. The next problem I had was that it was really had to mix all the ingredients together (maybe because I used the skinny noodles??). Next time I will mix the liquid with the noodles and then add it all to the chicken and veggies. I will make this again (we have already had it twice), but I will tweek it a little to get a more authentic Thai taste.
Delicious! I made the recipe exactly as written except for leaving out the salt (we have to keep the sodium levels down). It was too spicy for the heat-haters in the house. For them I would cut the chili sauce in half. However, the heat-haters still thought it was delicious enough to use every heat taming method they could think of so they could eat it. We'll definitely make this again!
