Pad Thai noodles are rice noodles typically ¼ inch wide. They are light and delicate in order to take on the flavors of the dish.

They tend to fall apart if over-cooked or stirred too vigorously, so easy does it.

I have seen many recipes that say you can substitute fettuccine for pad Thai noodles.

They may look similar, but the texture, consistency, and flavor are quite different.

Easy Chicken Pad Thai Recipe - This simplified Thai pasta dish has all the flavor and appeal of authentic Pad Thai, without unnecessary steps or ingredients.
Servings: 6


For the Pasta:

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken, cut into bite size pieces.
  • 8 ounces pad Thai noodles (rice noodles)
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil or coconut oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 2 cups mung bean sprouts
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

For the Sauce:


  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/3 cup peanuts, lightly chopped


  • Place the noodles in a large bowl. Completely cover them with cold water and soak for 20-30 minutes, until slightly pliable. 
  • In a separate bowl, mix the sauce ingredients together. Set aside.
  • Generously salt and pepper the chicken pieces. Set a wok or large deep pan over medium heat and add the oil. Sauté the chicken until mostly cooked, 3-5 minutes.
  • Stir in the garlic, green onions, and bean sprouts. Cook for 1-2 minutes. Push the ingredients to the sides, and scramble the eggs in the middle of pan until firm. Mix together.
  • Drain the noodles well, then add the noodles and sauce. Stir gently to incorporate, cooking another 2-3 minutes, careful not to over cook noodles. Top with peanuts and cilantro.

  1. It was quick and easy like you said, but a little flavorless so I added 2 tablespoons of sweet chili sauce and that gave it  the perfect finish   Thank you 

  2. Made this last night, and it was amazing!  I took the liberty to add some red bell pepper and peas in addition, and the recipe accommodates it well.  Thank you for sharing!

  3. The recipe is great, very nice taste. I just add a little more heat to it and some ginger, and it’s spectacular.

  4. Deeeeeelicious and awesomely easy. I always add extra garlic salt and pepper.

  5. I live up in the far north of Canada and our grocery stores are way behind the times, but I know from living in Calgary that they have have restaurants on every corner and i miss the flavour of the east. I can do the spicy stuff, my tummy just won’t take it but this one sounds so great. Miss the spring rolls and the flavourful chicken broths.
