Are you craving some noodles? If so, you’ve come across the right recipe! This thick noodle stir fry is made with soft chewy XL noodles, juicy chicken, crisp fresh Chinese broccoli and soft creamy scrambled eggs. All of that combined gets drenched in a rich savory yet slightly sweet sauce and then sealed with a kiss of sweet honey roasted peanuts on top to finish the dish off.
Do you ever get in those moods where you just need to enjoy a comforting asian noodle dish, in your pajamas while binge watching your favorite shows or movies? SAME, I feel you! This dish right here gives you all of those feels. It is cozy, comforting and so delicious. One bite and you won‘t be able to stop eating it.
This Thai inspired dish is well known at most restaurants. What makes this dish so tasty is the sauce. You have to get the sauce right because in all honesty, the noodles are bland, the vegetables and bland and even the chicken can be bland without the sauce. Pad see ew literally means “fried soy sauce”. This dish gets stir fried to perfection in a wok and then served hot and ready for you to devour in a matter of minutes.
When it comes to the proteins you have the freedom to customize! Although chicken is the most popular and highly recommended, you can absolutely make this dish vegetarian and eliminate all or any proteins or you can eliminate the chicken and substitute for your favorite protein. This dish will pair really well with shrimp or beef as well!
As far as the Chinese broccoli goes this could be a bit difficult to source. I sourced mine at Seafood City. But, they can be found at any asian or international mart. Chinese broccoli is also known as: “Gai Ian or Kai-lan”. It is quite different than the American broccoli as they look like stalks with large leaves. When making the dish you want to include both leaves and stalks. I recommend slicing them into pieces as shown in the photo above. If you are unable to find the Chinese broccoli, you can absolutely substitute for regular broccoli florets and some spinach for the leafy texture.
