Pad See You with Chicken

Americans might eat pad Thai or drunken noodles, but pad see you is the most popular Thai noodle dish for Thais. It has a smoky, sweet and savory flavor that is truly addicting. Sweet soy sauce is an ingredient you need to get acquainted with ASAP! It's used heavily in China, Indonesia and Malaysia. It's really just Chinese-style soy sauce mixed with molasses--pretty darn simple and delicious! Not very salty, it's more sweet and savory, and it's the key to making delicious pad see you. Pad means to stir-fry. See you translates to "soy sauce" in Thai, similar to shoyu in Japanese.

Ingredients

3 tablespoons (45 milliliters) Chinese sweet soy sauce

1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) oyster sauce

2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) fish sauce

2 teaspoons (10 grams) sugar

1 1/2 cups (335 grams) broccoli florets

3 tablespoons (45 milliliters) vegetable oil

1 pound (450 grams) chicken breast, sliced thin

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 large eggs

4 cups (960 grams) fresh rice noodles, separated

1/2 teaspoon white pepper

Directions

  1. Combine the Chinese sweet soy sauce, oyster sauce, fish sauce and sugar in a small bowl and set it aside.
  2. Place the broccoli florets in a bowl with about 1 tablespoon (15 milliliters) of water and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes on high, then set aside until ready to use.
  3. Heat the oil on high in a large skillet for about 1 minute. When you see the first wisps of white smoke, add the chicken and garlic to the pan and saute for about 1 minute or until the exterior of the chicken is mostly seared and opaque. Don't be scared to really scrape the bits off the pan before they burn.
  4. Add in the eggs, then "cradle" the noodles in the eggs, tossing to coat the noodles with the egg.
  5. Drain the broccoli and add, tossing it constantly until it starts to turn dark green, 1 to 2 minutes. Then add the sauce and stir constantly to combine for about 3 minutes until the noodles soak up the sauce and start to crisp slightly on the edges.
  6. When the chicken is cooked through and the sauces are absorbed, sprinkle with white pepper and combine very well.
