Chicken Pad Thai


I’m months away from my first international trip sponsored by my own debit card and I can only imagine how bomb the Pad Thai is in Phuket lol! Dropping by again to share a classic recipe in my books, Chicken Pad Thai. In this recipe, you’ll find clear directions for making homemade sauce. But let’s admit it, no one had time to make sauces on a weekday. Feel free to use pre-made sauce found at your local market or grocery store. Just remember, if it doesn’t come out right- we’re all responsible for our own kitchens *adds a classic Nene Leakes meme*
