A special thanks to my sister, Rachael, for finding this brilliant recipe!

Pad Thai
4tbs soy sauce
4tbs water
4tbs creamy peanut butter
4tsps Asian chili paste
olive oil
1tsp minced garlic
1tsp ginger powder
1 bag frozen veggies (of your choice I use green beans)
bag of pad thai noodles
1tbs brown sugar
1tbs cider vinegar 
1 lime

*In a small bowl whisk together soy sauce, water, peanut butter, and chili paste until smooth

*Heat a large skillet over medium heat add some olive oil and cook chicken.  Squirt lime juice over chicken

*In another large skillet add oil, garlic and ginger.  Cook until fragrant.  Add frozen vegetables, mix so that garlic and ginger cover over veggies.  Cook until hot.  Squirt with remaining lime.
*Cook Pad Thai noodles according to directions.
*In a serving bowl add chicken, noodles and vegetables.  Mix together.  Add brown sugar, vinegar and peanut spice.  Toss together.  Add peanuts as a garnish. 

Enjoy =)

  2. Hi Amanda!
    I've been away from blogging for 2 weeks. Was glad to come back and find your post. This recipe looks really interesting. Marcy and I baked cutout cookies a few days ago. Had very warm thoughts of our mother- daughter day.
    Love you,
