I looked in several grocery stores for tamarind ( the staple for making Pad Thai). This Chicken Pad Thai is made WITHOUT tamarind. If you’re living in a place where Asian ingredients are hard to find then this Chicken Pad Thai recipe is the perfect recipe for you.
I had some leftover barbecued chicken I needed to use and decided to try it in Pad Thai. I was very excited to learn it was delicious. I love when I can create a different dish with leftovers.
This Chicken Pad Thai has just a hint of heat. Since I not only couldn’t find tamarind I also couldn’t find red chilies so I substituted a jalapeno. With all the ingredients I couldn’t find I was happy to know how versatile this recipe is.
