This recipe is totally cheating, but it tastes so good! A friend came into town and I asked him what his requests were for the week. He said that his favorite food is Pad Thai. I figured I could give it a shot because what’s the worst that can happen? We have to order take out? The experiment went well, so I thought I’d share it with you! The secret? Thai Kitchen! They make this great Pad Thai Noodle Kit that includes the noodles and sauce, along with directions for making it. I modified it slightly because I love chicken satay, so I wanted to make the combo, instead of the traditional Pad Thai.
