Enjoy the most delicious dinner tonight with this Gluten Free Chicken Pad Thai.
Have you ever truly just fallen in love with a meal? The first time I had Pad Thai that’s exactly how I felt. It was literally love at first bite. I was also anxious to make my own too.
The one thing I truly enjoy about Pad Thai is that it’s a light dish, it’s not heavy on the sauce, it’s a nice coating with a buttery undertone too. Gluten Free Chicken Pad Thai has quickly found its way onto our weekly menu.
This Gluten Free Pad Thai is super easy to make gluten free too with rice noodles. We prefer the Thai Kitchen Noodles.
What do you need for Gluten Free Pad Thai?
- Hard-Boiled Eggs
- Gluten Free Rice Noodles
- Cooked & Cubed Chicken
- Olive Oil
- Sliced Carrots
- Sliced Bell Peppers
- Crushed Garlic
- Stir Fry Vegetables
- Brown Sugar
- Soy Sauce
- Fish Sauce
- Crushed Peanuts
- Green Onions
Most of the ingredients may already be in your pantry, and then simply add in the veggies that you prefer and you are all set. I decided to mix some freshly chopped veggies with a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables.
I loved the addition of vegetables, plus it really added to the flavor and color of the dish too.
Tip for Making Gluten Free Chicken Pad Thai
A quick tip is to use leftover chicken. This dish works best with chicken thighs. If you are having chicken thighs earlier in the week, save about 2 cups of cubed chicken.
This will make this dish super quick and easy to make on a busy weeknight.
Another tip is that you can substitute soy sauce for fish sauce if you need to. I’ve done this plenty of times and no one can tell a difference, not even me!
As we head into a busy week or weekend, I highly suggest adding this Gluten Free Chicken Pad Thai to your menu.
Remember, if you don’t need gluten free, that’s not a big deal either because you can just use regular rice noodles and soy sauce without any issue.
