Quick Rating

Pad Thai cooking sauce takes much of the work out of this traditional Thai noodle dish that looks as great as it tastes. You can use 200 g shelled raw shrimp in place of the chicken, if you prefer.

4 tsp (20 mL) PC 100% Pure Canola Oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced
1 sweet red pepper, thinly sliced
1 boneless skinless chicken breast (about 230 g), diced
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) snow peas, halved lengthwise
1 pkg (350 g) PC Blue Menu Extra Firm Tofu , cubed
1 jar (400 mL) PC Blue Menu Pad Thai Cooking Sauce
2 cups (500 mL) bean sprouts

Instructions

  1. Place noodles in bowl. Add boiling water to cover. Let stand for 2 minutes or just until slightly softened. Drain and set aside. Noodles will cook further in the sauce.

Push vegetables to the side of pan; add remaining oil and cook snow peas, chicken, tofu and salt until browned. Stir in pad Thai sauce and 1 tbsp (15 mL) water. Stir in noodles; reduce heat to simmer and cook 2 minutes longer or until chicken is cooked through.
