Pad Thai

This is becoming one of our family favorites.  To make this a fairly quick and simple meal I cook a whole chicken, de-bone it, and freeze it in meal size portions for making this great dish.
Dice up what ever extra veggies you would like to add. We usually do carrots and onions. (You can also do green peppers, cabbage, etc.)
Dice up some green onion and set to the side.
Gather your brown sugar, soy sauce, and vinegar for making the sauce in just a minute.
Saute your extra veggies together in a little bit of oil.
Get however many eggs you would like.
Whisk 'em together.
Get out your bean sprouts.  Not sure why, but we really like these in there.
Get out your rice noodles and start boiling your water.  (They won't take long to cook so don't put them in the water until your other ingredients are just about ready.)
Scramble the eggs with the sauteed extra veggies.
When the eggs are coked through add the green onions.
Then the bean sprouts (if they float your boat).
Then the pre-cooked, and already defrosted chicken.
While that is heating up mix up your sauce ingredients that you already gathered.  Bring them to a boil and then let them simmer over low heat while you get everything else together.  (About now is when I add the noodles to the boiling water.)
Add the cooked and drained noodles and the finished sauce into the pan with everything else.  Toss it all together.
Serve it up and enjoy!

1/4 cup oil
1/2 bunch green onions
extra veggies
bean sprouts (if desired)
rice noodles

3 T brown sugar
2 T soy sauce
1 T vinegar

Saute diced veggies.  Add eggs until cooked through.  Add green onions, bean sprouts, and then chicken until heated through.  Bring sauce ingredients to a boil and then simmer on low until thickened.  Boil water and cook noodles.  Drain noodles and toss noodles, sauce, and other ingredients together.

(We usually triple the sauce and use a whole package of rice noodles which makes about 6-8 servings.)

Do you have a pampered chef chopper?  If so, are you in love with it as much as I am?

I use this think at least once a day, but probably closer to two or three.  I dice up veggies in just about everything I cook; except maybe cake.  Haven't tried that one yet.

What are your favorite kitchen gagets?

Kind Regards,
