Pad Thai

I love me a good date night, and there's nowhere my husband and I love more than our favorite Thai restaurant. Well...lets just say that we don't get there very often anymore now that we have two kids and he's a busy medical student. Hence, on Friday nights, I bring date night to us by cooking one of our favorites - Pad Thai! I even went all out and made potstickers to go with!

Pad Thai

1 16oz package Rice Noodles
2 Chicken Breasts (cut into thin slices)
3 cloves Garlic (minced)
1 shallot (chopped)
4 Tablespoons Oil
4 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
3 Tablespoons Fish Sauce
3 Tablespoons White Vinegar
2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
4-5 Green Onions
1 cup Bean Sprouts ( I like bean sprouts, so I add extra)
1/2 cup Peanuts (chopped)
1 package Pad Thai Sauce

Thinly slice chicken

Cook chicken in a skillet with garlic until done. Add bean sprouts and green onions and cook until bean sprouts are softened. Cook rice noodles according to directions on the package. Meanwhile, combine pad Thai sauce, brown sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce, and vinegar to make the sauce.
When noodles are done, drain and toss them in with the chicken and vegetables. Pour sauce over noodles and top with freshly chopped peanuts.

*NOTE: Here's a picture of the Pad Thai Sauce, and fish sauce if you are unfamiliar with the ingredients

Happy Date Night :)
