Pad Thai Ingredients

  • 454 grams white rice noodles
  • 4 tablespoon coconut oil (or other cooking oil of choice)
  • 2 lbs chicken breasts, chopped into bite sized pieces
  • 2 cups chopped carrots
  • 2 sweet bell peppers, chopped
  • 1/3 cup green onion, chopped

Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili flakes


  • Cook the rice noodles according to the package instructions, but do not cook them fully as you’ll give them another minute or two in the pan after. Rinse the noodles in cold water, drain them, and set them aside.
  • While the noodles are cooking, place the sauce ingredients into a bowl and stir together until smooth. Set the sauce aside
  • Place a large pan or wok on the stove on medium heat and add the coconut oil. Add the chopped chicken breasts and cook them for 1-2 minutes per side, until fully cooked (total of ~8 minutes)
  • Add the chopped bell peppers, chopped carrots, and chopped green onion to the pan with the chicken and cook for ~10 minutes until the vegetables are tender
  • Add the noodles and sauce to the pan. Stir everything well to combine and heat together for 1-2 more minutes. Then enjoy!
