Chicken Broccoli Pad Thai

Chinese take-out is often a fall-back meal for many families. It is often quick and easy, making it something to go for during those busy months when time is at a premium. These days, the ease of making Chinese from home is coming to the forefront. In the amount of time it takes to call and order take-out and wait for delivery, a fresh, home-cooked Chinese meal can be on the table.

This chicken broccoli pad thai puts a twist on traditional Chinese pad thai. Chicken is stir-fried and cooked in a flavorful sauce, then tossed with broccoli slaw for a crispy, fresh crunch. Serve it along side Chinese tea and chopsticks for an authentic take-out feel.

  1. Kim….I love pad thai….but have never attempted to make it at home. This dish looks beautiful! I think I may even be brave enough to try it this week! That’s a great photo! : )

  2. What a lovely pad thai. Yes, I think it’s great idea to make Asian take out dishes at home too…you know exactly what’s going in and they’re actually quite easy to prepare too (than most people think). I love your presentation.
