- 150g flat rice stick noodles
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 100g chicken breast fillet, finely sliced
- 1 medium carrot, julienned
- 1 medium red capsicum, finely sliced
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 80g snow peas, trimmed and sliced
- 3 spring onions, thinly sliced
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 large handful bean sprouts
- 1 small handful fresh coriander, chopped
- 20g unsalted peanuts, chopped
- sliced fresh red chilli, to serve (optional)
- lime wedges, to serve
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
- 1 tbsp honey
- ½ tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 1 tbsp salt-reduced tamari or soy sauce
- ½ tsp finely chopped fresh red chilli
- Place the noodles in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave for 10 minutes and then loosen the noodles with a fork. Drain and refresh under cool running water. Drain well and set aside.
- To make the sauce, whisk the fish sauce, honey, rice vinegar, lime juice, tamari or soy and chilli together in a small bowl.
- Heat half the oil in a wok or a large, deep non-stick fry pan over medium-high heat. Carefully swirl the oil around to coat the sides of the wok or pan. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 4-6 minutes until cooked through, stirring frequently. Transfer to a plate.
- Reheat the wok or pan over medium-high heat. Add the remaining oil and carefully swirl it around to coat the sides of the wok or pan. Add the carrot and capsicum and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the garlic, snow peas and spring onions and stir-fry for 1 minute or until tender-crisp.
- Push the vegetables to the edges of the wok to create a well. Add the egg and stir-fry for 1 minute or until the egg is almost cooked. Add the noodles, chicken and sauce and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Add the bean sprouts and toss to combine.
- To serve, place the Pad Thai in two serving bowls and sprinkle over the coriander, peanuts and chilli (if using). Serve with lime wedges on the side.
