How to Make Pad Thai (stir-fried rice noodles) with chicken and shrimp

One of Thailand's most popular dishes is Pad Thai (or Phat Tai), which, in this case, is stir-fried rice noodles with eggs, chicken, shrimp and tons of other goodies. This is one of the most flavorful and versatile of all Thai dishes, not to mention easy to make.

Arnond Sreesuvan of Nud Pob Thai Cuisine does recommend soaking rice noodles for 4 hours for the best texture, but after that, it's a stir-fry snap. Dry-roasted peanuts, scallions and bean sprouts add lots of crunch to complement the soft noodles and scrambled egg. Thai chiles and a squeeze of lime add aroma and zing to a dish that offers a terrific idea for leftover cooked chicken or shrimp.
