Chicken Pad Thai

For the Pad Thai Sauce:

1/4 cup chicken stock

1 tablespoon soy sauce

3 tablespoons fish sauce

3 to 4 tablespoons brown sugar

1/2 to 1 teaspoon chili sauce, or to taste

3/4 tablespoon tamarind paste, dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water

For the Pad Thai:

8 ounces rice noodles

1 to 1 1/2 cups chopped chicken breast or thigh

3 tablespoons soy sauce

1 teaspoon cornstarch

1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 to 2 fresh red chiles, minced

1/4 cup chicken stock

1/2 cup radicchio, chopped (or vegetables of choice, like kale, green or red cabbage)

1 cup carrots, julienne cut, 2-inch match sticks

1 cup asparagus, sliced, length 2-inches

1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1/3 cup cashews

Lime or lemon wedges, for garnish

Make the sauce by combining the tamarind paste mixture, chicken stock, fish sauce, brown sugar, and chili sauce. Stir well to dissolve.

Taste-test for a tangy balance between sweet and sour. Add more sugar if too sour or more tamarind if too sweet.

Bring a large pot of water to boil and dunk in rice noodles. Stir to separate. Only cook until they are limp but still firm and slightly chewy (they will finish cooking later in the pan).

Drain the noodles and rinse well with cold water to prevent sticking. Set aside.

Add the marinated chicken. If the wok or skillet becomes dry, add the chicken stock. Stir-fry 5 to 7 minutes, until the chicken is cooked.

Add the drained noodles and pour the prepared sauce over. Using two utensils, use a gentle “lift and turn” method to fry the noodles (like tossing a salad).

Stir-fry in this way 5 minutes, or until the noodles are chewy. If you find your skillet too dry, add a little more oil.

Add the vegetables and continue frying for 1 more minute, or until the noodles are cooked. The noodles are done when they taste chewy and a little sticky.

Taste-test for seasoning, adding more fish sauce until your desired flavor is reached (you can add up to 1 tablespoon fish sauce).

Top with generous sprinklings of fresh cilantro and cashews. Serve with fresh lime or lemon wedges on the side.
