Classic Pad Thai
Cover noodles with boiling water and let stand for 5 minutes; drain well and reserve.Advertisement
Heat half the oil in a wok or deep skillet set over high heat. Crumble in chicken and add hot sauce; stir-fry for 3 to 5 minutes or until browned. Reserve on a platter.
Add remaining oil and peppers to pan; stir-fry for 3 minutes. Add shrimp and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Stir in garlic, ginger, broth, ketchup, lime juice, sugar and fish sauce. Bring to a boil. Add noodles and reserved meat; toss mixture to combine. Heat through.
Add sprouts and toss gently. Sprinkle with onions, coriander and peanuts.
Twist 1: For a pork variation, try ground pork instead of ground chicken.
Twist 2: For a meatless version, substitute chopped, firm tofu for the chicken and a chopped 3-egg omelet for the shrimp.
Twist 3: Simplify this recipe by omitting hot pepper sauce and replacing ketchup with Heinz Hot & Spicy Ketchup.
