Peanut Butter Chicken Pad Thai


When I was collaborating ideas of peanut butter recipes to post a peanut butter pad thai was one of the first things. I was trying to think of something different then just peanut butter desserts. With almost 2 million views, my sweet and sour chicken has been the top viewed recipe on my blog. So I decided to make the chicken the same as that chicken, but just add the peanut butter sauce instead of the sweet and sour sauce. I know most pad thai recipes do not have big chunks of chicken in them, but this one does. I will admit that I am a novice pad thai person. And this was actually my first pad thai recipe that I have ever tried to make. When I made it my kids were all sleeping, my husband was out of town, and once it was all cooked and ready I sat down and enjoyed every single bite in peace and quiet. And boy was it just what a needed! I hope all your pad thai lovers out there enjoy this recipe!
