This recipe is inspired by my partner’s favorite Thai dish. What makes Chicken Pad Thai different than other popular Thai dishes is the crushed peanuts and tamarind along with a few more important spices. This dish can be pulled together in under 30 minutes so follow along.

Pad Thai

Pad Thai is one of Thailand’s most famous stir frys and is my partners favorite food of all time. Whenever we go to any new Thai restaurant, it’s the first thing he orders.

I can hear it now, what do you two want to order. PAD THAI!! I don’t mind Pad Thai, however I always have to add red chili paste to it otherwise it’s just way to sweet most of the time in the restaurant’s for me.

Okay truth is, I’ve never been much of a Pad Thai fan. Only because I find most restaurants make it way to sweet and I much prefer recipes with a little bit of heat.

So I decided to make it at home and spice it up some to my liking and now have grown to love it. And well Jason… he is just super happy I now make it for him at home.

Now of course you can omit the side order of the “minced red chili paste” that I serve mine with. Then up the sugar in this recipe by 2 tbsp to have something quit similar to those restaurant style pad thai dishes if you’d like. After all it’s your pad thai and I want you to make it how you like it.

So what gives mine the extra heat? It’s the chili powder and the “red chili paste” that I serve on the side. Easy enough eh?

Make sure you are using Tamarind Concentrate vs the paste. You will know the difference because the concentrate is sold in small containers vs the paste which is actually a pulp and has to be soaked in water and strained prior to using.

When in doubt, just read the tamarind directions prior to purchasing.

Note:  Feel free to use shrimp in replace of the chicken or just enjoy it as is.
