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!

Asian style recipes are some of our favorite to make at home. It doesn’t take a lot of ingredients or time to get big flavors and something the whole family will like. And these Thai Noodles are no exception, just a few minutes and you have something extra delicious.

And if you want something without meat in a more traditional peanut sauce don’t miss these Thai Peanut Noodles.

One of the things that I love about Asian recipes is how quickly they come together. It may look like a long list of ingredients, but it really comes together in just minutes. The key is to having everything prepped, measured and ready when you start.

You can mix together the sauce and have it ready, chop the vegetables, slice the meat etc. You can do this all at one time or even in the pockets of time during your day. So the actual cooking part is really quick and easy!

  4. Add in the bell pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Mix together all of the ingredients for the sauce and pour over the chicken. Simmer for a few minutes until the sauce starts to thicken.

What Noodles To Use

If you can’t find pad thai noodles, you really can use anything. Linguine or Spaghetti work really well. I like to use a long noodles, but really anything works.

Can I Add Vegetables

Absolutely. This recipe calls for just bell peppers, but you can add zucchini, broccoli, snap peas or whatever your favorite veggies are.

Storage

If you have leftovers, store them in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. They are great warmed in the microwave, or if you want cold noodles straight from the container, I will not judge!
