from atk email: We streamlined this Thai restaurant favorite to make it a fast weeknight dinner option. For maximum efficiency, prepare the chicken, garlic, cilantro, and bean sprouts while the rice noodles are soaking. If you can't find fish sauce, substitute a combination of 4 minced anchovy fillets and 1/4 cup soy sauce. Rice stick noodles can be found in the Asian section of most supermarkets. If desired, top the pad Thai with chopped peanuts and scallions.
