Recipe Ingredients for Pad Thai with chicken

6 ounces rice noodles
1/4 cup basil
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 ounces firm tofu, diced
1 chicken breast
1 1/2 tablespoons paprika
3 eggs, beaten
3 garlic cloves, pureed
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup fish sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons peanuts
1 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup mint leaves
2 scallions, white and green parts, thinly sliced

Recipe Directions for Pad Thai with chicken

  1. Soften the noodles according to the package directions (noodles usually need to soak in warm water for about 15 minutes), and drain. Set aside.

  2. Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil, add the basil leaves and fry just until crisp, about 1 minute. Lift leaves out with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Add 1 more tablespoon of oil to wok. Add the tofu, chicken or shrimp, salt and paprika, and stir-fry until cooked through and browned, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the eggs and scramble, while shredding them with a spoon, until egg is just set. Transfer everything from wok to a bowl. Wipe out the wok.

  3. Reheat wok and add remaining tablespoon oil. Add the garlic and stirfry until aromas are released, about 10 seconds. Add the vinegar, fish sauce, palm or brown sugar, and heat through. Add the drained noodles and toss until the noodles have absorbed most of the sauce, about 3 minutes. Add the red chile paste, dried shrimp, ground peanuts, bean sprouts, and reserved tofu, chicken or shrimp and eggs, and toss thoroughly.

  4. Transfer the mixture to a platter. Garnish with reserved fried basil leaves, mint leaves, scallions and lime wedges.
