homemade pad thai

Our family loves pad thai! We have tried so many recipes over the years, and have finally perfected our own.  We modified many of our favourite recipes, picking & choosing our favourite ingredients and combining them into our very own perfect pad thai!

You can make this recipe with or without meat! 

2-3 sliced chicken breasts
1tbsp + 1 tsp sesame oil
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 large red pepper, thinly sliced
16 oz rice noodles 

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup fish sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/8 cup sriracha sauce (less OR more depending on how much spice you like) 

optional garnishes 
 unsalted peanuts, chopped
fresh cilantro, chopped 
2 chopped green onions
1-2 limes, sliced 

1. combine all sauce ingredients & set aside
2. heat 1 tbsp sesame oil in a large frying pan or wok and stir fry chicken until cooked
3. add red pepper & stir fry until they reach desired tenderness 
4. create a space in the middle of the wok & add remaining 1 tsp of sesame oil. stir in beaten eggs & scramble until cooked
5. while the eggs are cooking, boil rice noodles according to the package instructions (usually for about 3 minutes). Be careful not to overcook the rice noodles or they will become very soft & slimy. Once you have drained the rice noodles, stir in 2 tbsp olive oil to prevent them from sticking together
6. add the cooked rice noodles right away to the wok & stir in sauce
7. stir fry until noodles & chicken are well coated and hot
8. serve immediately and garnish with chopped peanuts,  green onion, cilantro and lime juice 

**if you are serving this to baby, avoid crushed peanuts as these are considered a choking hazard**


Lillian used to love spicy foods, although she was quite fussy when we ate pad thai this week. I stirred some plain full fat yogurt into her pad thai to reduce the heat and this seemed to help ease her tears! 


  1. Hey! I love to Thai food because of its nutrition, healthy and tasty. Different spices makes it more yummy. Whenever I talk about Thai food I have moth watering every time. I have saw some new Chinese and Thai recipes for New Year on Nexter.
