Chicken Pad Thai

I love Pad Thai with all my heart!  It is sweet, spicy and DELICIOUS.  My husband and I always order it and it never changes; his chicken star 4, mine chicken star 2!!  Did I mention that he always douses it with additional siracha?  I was impressed with this recipe and really enjoyed it.  It was not quite the same as the restaurants, but each restaurant varies in flavor anyways.  I will definitely be making this again and I will post any updates with recipe changes. 
Ingredients for Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon hoison
  • 1/2-1 tablespoon siracha

Ingredients for Pad Thai:
  • 1 box Pad Thai Noodles
  • 2 thin chicken breasts, thinly sliced strips (slightly freeze before slicing strips)
  • 3 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 3 stems green onions, diced
  • 1 cup tofu, diced
  • 2 eggs
  • peanuts, crushed
  • lime wedges

Directions:  Bake chicken for 10 minutes at 350 degrees and boil noodles according to package directions.  Simmer all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan until thoroughly mixed and set aside.  Heat oil in wok or large skillet and add onions, garlic and red pepper.  Mix in tofu and noodles.   Add in eggs and thoroughly mix until cooked.  Add chicken and 1/2 the sauce and stir everything together.  Give it a taste and add more sauce if needed.  Top with peanuts, additional green onions and lime.
