Pad Thai





When I saw the Pad Thai from Bake Your Day, I just knew I had to make it.  We love Pad Thai and I have had a hard time finding a recipe that had the flavor we liked.  This one hit the spot. It was so good and delicious that we have eaten it at least once a week for a month now.  It's easy, tasty and my kids LOVE IT!  It also reheats very well the next day.

I snapped some pictures of our dish which you will notice is made with Chicken.  We have also made this with just a scrambled egg.  I can't wait to make it with the shrimp when the hubby is away for the weekend.  He does not like shrimp...boo hoo!

Recipe: Shrimp/Chicken Pad Thai 
adapted from Bake Your Day


8 ounces of rice noodles
2 Tbs. brown sugar
2 Tbs. soy sauce
2 tsp. oyster sauce
2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbs. Sriracha (more or less depending on your desired heat level)
1 tsp. freshly grated ginger
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
3 Tbs. canola oil
1 1/2 cups green onions, sliced into 1-inch pieces
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbs. cilantro, divided
1.5 cups of cooked chicken
1 – 2 cups bean sprouts
1/4 cup dry roasted peanuts, unsalted


Cook noodles according to package.  Drain and drizzle with olive oil.

While the noodles cook, mix the brown sugar, soy sauce, oyster sauce, lemon juice, Sriracha in a small bowl and set aside.

Heat the oil in a large, high-sided skillet or wok.  Add onion, garlic, shrimp and 1 tablespoon cilantro; stir-fry until chicken is almost cooked.  Stir in sauce and cook one minute, stirring constantly. 

Add the cooked noodles and bean sprouts.  Garnish with peanuts and the remaining cilantro.
