Spicy Thai Noodles with Chicken – a super quick and easy dinner that is on the table in minutes. Full of great Thai flavor with easy to find ingredients!
What a week! I apologize if you were trying to access this site on Monday night. The site was down for almost 12 hours, and I was stressing out!! Thankfully my tech person is amazingly persistent and was able to figure out the problem and get things running again. If you notice anything that looks out of place or isn’t how it should be, let me know. I had to fix a couple things, and hope that I was able to get them all! So now that that is behind us, we can focus on the food again. Because that is why we are here, right?!
Spicy Thai Noodles with Chicken is one of those dinners that comes together in minutes. Really, in the time it takes to boil water and cook pasta, the rest of the meal is ready, and you can eat. Those are my kind of dinners! We love Thai food in our house. Pad Thai is one of our favorite dishes. This isn’t Pad Thai, but is has some of the same flavors, and is definitely going to be made again and again here.
And the major bonus…..no crazy ingredients. I used herbs from Gourmet Garden, that I can find at my regular grocery store, to get all the flavor I needed. No special trips to an Asian market, and picking up something I will only use once. Thai seasoning is a combination of many different Thai ingredients, all in one tube!! These Thai Shrimp Lettuce Wraps from All Day I Dream About food are is another great use for the seasoning.
I used the herbs in Tuscan Chicken. A one skillet chicken dinner. And Sausage Tortellini Skillet. A hearty and delicious dinner to feed picky eaters. And if you are just looking for more Thai food check out One Pot Thai Shrimp Pasta.
Because we love Pad Thai, I used Pad Thai noodles to make this. But if you don’t’ have them, regular spaghetti or linguini would work great! I did let the chicken marinate in the fridge for 2 hours before I started cooking. You could start this step in the morning, and cook it as soon as you came home as well.
It really gives the chicken a ton of flavor. I kind of wanted to just eat the chicken on its own when I was making these Spicy Thai Noodles. You can control the heat with how much Sriracha you add, so if you don’t like a lot of heat, cut back. My husband added more at the table because he loves it hot! And Spicy Thai Noodles with Chicken makes for great leftovers, so you can have lunch the next day!
