Connor Cooks Pad Thai

First ever attempt at Pad Thai. Pretty good!

Welcome to my website and thank you for looking around! This is my first post here and what a great way to start by sharing a meal that I cooked for the first time. Two firsts make a double first. That’s what I always say.

Anyways, Pad Thai can seem like an intimidating meal. It certainly fell in the category of food that I would just order instead of trying to make. Where do you start? What is that defining flavor? Will it taste like what I imagine it would taste like?

I’m here to tell you that this is actually an incredibly easy meal to make and something that anybody can try. Here’s how…

Ingredients

  • Pad Thai Noodles
  • Chicken Breast
  • Egg
  • Fish Sauce
  • Lemon
  • Cilantro
  • Peanuts
  • Butter 
  • Vegetable Oil
  1. Make your NOODLES. Set aside. I used black and clear “Pad Thai” noodles from the store. I’m using quotes here because I don’t think they are the same noodles as you would find from a thai restaurant. They were still pretty tasty and the black and clear motif was visually pleasing. Perfect for the gram. 
  2. In a wok, cook your thinly sliced CHICKEN in BUTTER until lightly browned. Remove from wok and set aside. 
  3. In the wok fry EGGS in VEGETABLE OIL. Add back in the CHICKEN, and add the NOODLES, FISH SAUCE, and LEMON to taste. 
  4. Add crushed PEANUTS and CILANTRO
  5. EAT

Couple of Notes- Amanda doesn’t care for sprouts so I omitted them for the sake of my marriage. Also, we were unable to procure oyster sauce for this cook but I would highly recommend you find it for yours. The fish sauce was great on it’s own but I think the oyster sauce would have added an awesome flavor. Use as much or as little of the lemon or fish sauce to your taste. I was pretty heavy handed and I liked it. 

Cool. Let me know how this recipe goes for you and be sure to comment below on how you like to make this dish!

Thank you for cooking.
