Here below easy Pad Thai Recipe  :

  • For the Pad Thai Sauce:
  • 3/4 tablespoon tamarind paste (dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water; look for tamarind at Asian/Chinese or Indian food stores)
  • 3 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons chili sauce (or 1/2 teaspoon or more dried crushed chili or cayenne, to taste)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar 
  • For the Pad Thai:
  • 8 ounces rice noodles (or enough for 2 people, linguini-width)
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups chicken breast (or thigh, chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil (more or less as needed for stir-frying)
  • 4 cloves garlic (minced)
  • Optional: 1 to 2 fresh red chilies (minced)
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 3 cups bean sprouts
  • 1/2 cup cilantro (fresh; chopped)
  • 3 green onions (sliced)
  • 1/3 cup peanuts (crushed or roughly chopped; or other nuts, such as cashews) 
  • Garnish: lime wedges 

Kitchen Notes

For even more flavor, make a double batch of the pad Thai sauce. Then, as you're stir-frying the noodles, add more sauce until you're happy with the taste (you can also add extra fish sauce). Any leftover sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.
