PANTRY PAD THAI

PREP TIME

10 minutes + soaking
COOK TIME

10 minutes
SERVES

2
Ingredients

150g thin dried rice stick noodles

1 tbsp vegetable oil

¼ red onion, finely diced

150g chicken thigh, cut into small cubes

2 eggs, lightly whisked

¼ cup finely sliced spring onion

1 tbsp roughly chopped roasted cashews

lime wedges, to serve

chilli powder, to serve (optional)

 

Pad Thai sauce:

2 tbsp brown sugar

2 tbsp fish sauce

2 tbsp white vinegar

1 tbsp tomato paste

Steps
Step 1

Soak the noodles in room temperature water for 20-30 minutes.

Step 2

In the meantime, for the pad Thai sauce, combine the ingredients in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring every so often, for 5 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved and the sauce has thickened slightly.

Step 3

When you’re ready to cook, bring a large pot of water to the boil. Have that boiling on the side.

Step 4

Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the red onion and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Then add the chicken and stir-fry until cooked. Pour in the egg and straight away, remove your noodles from the room temperature water and add them into the side pot of boiling water. Allow noodles to cook for 10-20 seconds and then use tongs to transfer the noodles straight into the wok. Pour over the pad Thai sauce and toss the whole lot together until well combined. Toss through the spring onion.

Step 5

Divide among serving plates. Top with cashews and serve with a lime wedge and chilli powder, if using.

hits the spot!

Made this recipe after a video on Facebook promoted Marion’s cookbook… After enjoying Mama Noi’s adorable performance I found I had all the ingredients to make this. It is perfect made as written with a well-balanced taste and sauce amount! Highly enjoyed this success.

Tastes like the Real Deal

Trust Marion’s recipe – she’s right when she says that this *almost* tastes like the real deal! The combination of tomato paste, vinegar and fish sauce gives it that nice sweet and sour flavour that traditional pad thai has. As well as the chicken, I added 100g of prawns and it was pretty darn good!
