With such nice feedback on my better-than-takeout chicken fried rice, you have convinced me maybe we’ve got something with this homemade, “better-than-takeout” thing. As said before, although I am not Chinese (or Thai) I can vouch for what is tasty. And easy to make. Pad Thai lovers, let’s do this! You won’t be disappointed.

      Made this for hubby tonight and he loved it! He’s such a huge pad thai fan but every attempt I’ve made over the years has not only taken FOREVER to prepare but has been a yucky total failure..the ingredients were always too overpowering not to mention they made the house reek.
      I had given up hope on trying again until I saw your recipe and thought perhaps simpler is better. I didn’t have rice noodles or bean sprouts so I just used spaghetti noodles. .after all this was just a test to see if he liked the sauce. Needless to say he was leary of tasting it since I don’t have a good track record but he was brave and started smiling after the first bite. :) The flavor was really good and he’d definitely eat it again, and since rice noodles take so long to prep and difficult to get just right he’d leave the spaghetti noodles or perhaps use fettuccine or linguine. I did add a few other things for flavor like a tablespoon creamy peanut butter, pinch ginger, dash apple cider vinegar, and a dash worchestershire. No nasty fish sauce is definitely a plus! Thanks for giving us an easy option! :)

        You sprinkle the fish sauce on when it’s all done and you’re ready to eat :D!
