Extra easy chicken - perfect for Thai cuisine that can be ready in 20 minutes!
tablespoon vegetable oil
lb uncooked chicken breast tenders (not breaded), cut in half crosswise
packages (3 oz each) chili-flavor ramen noodles
cup lime juice
medium green onions, sliced (1/4 cup)
cup chopped salted peanuts
teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro
In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until browned. Stir in eggs. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until eggs are firm.
Stir in water, noodles with contents of seasoning packets and lime juice. Cover; cook 5 minutes, stirring once or twice to separate noodles.
Stir to mix all ingredients; spoon onto serving plates. Sprinkle with onions, peanuts and cilantro.
If you can’t find the chili-flavor ramen noodles in your neck of the woods, try chicken-, shrimp- or vegetable-flavor. Fish sauce is often used in traditional pad thai; if you’d like to try it, replace 2 tablespoons of the water with fish sauce.
