2 chicken breast
1 package of snow peas
half a can of bamboo shoots
package brown rice noodles
handfull of chopped, unsalted peanuts
3 tbsp peanut butter
6 tbsp sesame seed oil
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
Saute chicken in a splash of sesame seed oil until it is thoroughly cooked through but still moist. Cut into bit size pieces. Toss snow peas, chopped peanuts, and bamboo shoots into the pan.
In a separate boil, mix together peanut butter, sesame seed oil, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Pour over chicken mixture in the pan.
Cook brown rice noodles according to directions on box. Serve the chicken pad thai over the rice noodles.
Pad thai is a great building block recipe. You can add all sorts of vegetables that you have on hand and you can use chicken, shrimp, or possibly pork (never tried it that way, but I'm sure it's possible). The chopped peanuts add some great texture. Pad thai is probably one of my favorite dishes, so it was fun to make some last night.
