Ingredients

  • 7 oz pad Thai rice noodles (from 14-oz package)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • 2 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped fresh cauliflower florets
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced on the bias
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted, salted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges

Steps

  • 1

    In medium bowl, mix chicken thighs and curry paste; stir to thoroughly coat. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add chicken in an even layer. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, without moving, until browned. Turn chicken, and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until no longer pink in center. Pour chicken with drippings into small bowl, and cover with foil; wipe out pan. Add remaining tablespoon of oil; place over medium-high heat, then add cauliflower and bell pepper, and cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened.

    Add soy mixture, drained noodles and chicken with drippings; stir to combine. Reduce heat to low. Simmer 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until sauce is thickened. Stir in green onions, peanuts and herbs. Divide mixture among 4 plates. Serve with lime wedges.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    Fish sauce adds that yummy umami flavor to this dish. Add some to soups, stir-fries, even scrambled eggs for a little extra earthiness.
  • tip 2
    Boneless skinless chicken thighs are just as easy to handle as breasts, but much more flavorful and tender, even after long cooking.
