READ OTHER REVIEWS FIRST BEFORE TRYING THIS RECIPE.
I made the mistake of not reading the reviews for other people's tips and now I regret it. I used an additional 2oz of noodles than listed in the recipe (that was just the size of my package), and my noodles were SO dry. I added more fish sauce, soy sauce, sriracha, the juice of one lime, oil, and it just wasn't helping. Someone mentioned peanut butter, so I will try that next time too. This recipe doesn't include cilantro, which I thought was a must, so I added it as well. I also bought a small package of firm tofu and added it with the chicken. I'm not sure why my noodles weren't cooking well, so I ended up throwing them in another pan and adding a little bit of water which I let evaporate. It seemed to have helped soften the noodles, but maybe there was something I could have done differently.
This was my first time making pad thai, so I will leave that as a disclaimer. I have a lot of leftovers, so I think I will go and try to make additional sauce, if possible. I also feel like this recipe didn't have enough ingredients? I am new to thai cooking, but I felt like this was lackluster.
