Pad Kee Mow (Drunkard's Noodles)

the apprentice

"Pad Kee Mow, or Drunkard's Noodles, is a popular Thai dish. It is my personal favorite when visiting any Thai restaurant. It is made differently by every cook. My girlfriend and I experimented to come up with this version. Feel free to make alterations to suit your own taste! Many ingredients (Thai basil, fish sauce, palm sugar, etc.) may be difficult to find in a regular supermarket, but you can most likely find them in an Asian market."

  • Ready In

  1. Whisk together rice vinegar, fish sauce, lime juice, palm sugar, red pepper flakes, and black pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Marinate chicken into rice vinegar mixture; set aside while preparing remaining ingredients.
  3. Separate rice noodles in warm water, about 5 minutes; drain.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat. Cook and stir the garlic and onion in the hot oil until the onion is soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
  5. Increase heat to medium-high. Stir chicken and marinade into onion mixture; cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink in the center and sauce begins to thicken, 7 to 10 minutes.
  6. Stir rice noodles, oyster sauce, soy sauce, red bell pepper, tomatoes, green onion, and basil leaves into the chicken mixture; cook and stir until sauce is evenly distributed and noodles are tender, 5 minutes more.

Holy hot! It was too spicy to eat! If the pepper was adjusted, this may have been a really good recipe.

Loved it but it was incredibly salty. Made my five year old cry. Would cut the fish sauce and soy sauce in 1/2. Is fairly spicy, which my husband and older son loved.

Very Tasty and easy to cook !

I made a few minor adjustments- used dried rice noodles, regular sugar, and regular basil. I used thin rice noodles because that's what I had on hand, but in the future would definitely use wid...
