Authentic Pad Thai
  • 12 ounces dried rice noodles
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons tamarind paste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup coarsely ground peanuts
  • 2 cups bean sprouts
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon paprika, or to taste

  1. Place rice noodles in a large bowl and cover with several inches of room temperature water; let soak for 30 to 60 minutes. Drain.
  2. Whisk sugar, vinegar, fish sauce, and tamarind paste in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, remove from heat.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir until chicken is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon oil and minced garlic in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Stir in eggs; scramble until eggs are nearly cooked through, about 2 minutes. Add cooked chicken breast slices and rice noodles; stir to combine.
