This easy and spicy Thai chicken dish is similar to the restaurant version of drunken noodles.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and serrano chile and cook for 1 minute. Add chicken, fish sauce, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, and molasses. Cook until chicken is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes. Add bell peppers, tomatoes, and cooked noodles; toss until mixed with the sauce and warmed through, about 5 minutes more.

Wow! This recipe is big on flavor!!! I haven t made any Tai food and this recipe not only doesn t disappoint but it has awakened me to a new type of food to experiment with. This is a very simple recipe to make but the flavors are very complex. For me I would leave out the tomatoes because they don t add anything essential to the recipe. In the recipe the basil was only added at the end...so I added a bit towards the end of cooking and then used more as a garnish. I mean 1/2 cup of basil and you can do a lot of things! Also possibly make up extra sauce just in case anyone wants a bit more because it is super good! Thank you for a great recipe! Read More

Really enjoyed this. Good flavor and easy to make. I substituted a jalapeno for the Serrano chile because I was a little bit afraid to go too hot. I think for me that was the right choice. The dish as shown in the photo seems to have less 'noodle to non-noodle' ratio than I ended up with. Next time I may drop down to 8 oz of noodles instead of 12, and I may bump up the chicken to 1.5 lbs instead of 1 lb. But I really enjoyed this, and in my opinion it was just as good as some of our local Thai restaurants! Read More
