Chicken Pad Thai

I posted my chicken pad Thai last night and got so many messages for the recipe! So here it is, it was absolutely delicious!

1 package brown rice noodles

1 lb chicken breasts (I used thinly sliced chicken tenders)

1/2 cup salted creamy peanut butter

3 tbsp tamari (or soy low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos)

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

about 1/4 cup water to thin

Bring a pot of water to boil and add brown rice noodles for about 10 minutes or until soft. Drain and set aside

Mix ingredients for peanut sauce and set aside

Separately, make chicken following this recipe (you can also just cook in a pan if you prefer)

In a large pan, saute the mushrooms and scallions until tender in sesame oil (can also use olive oil or avocado oil)

Add in the noodles and peanut sauce. Mix everything together

Make a hole in the center of the pan and crack the two eggs. Let them fry and then scramble in to mix with the rest of the ingredients

When chicken is ready, slice into small pieces and add to the pan along with the bean sprouts

When everything is mixed well, add the peanuts, mint and squeeze of lime juice. Serve hot!

Molly's Recipes

1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 yellow onion, diced
1 14 ounce can of chicken stock
3 cups (about) of homemade chicken stock that has been reduced and defatted *
3 cups (about) of diced left-over chicken*
2 medium carrots, peeled and diced small
3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced rather small
6 white mushrooms, sliced up rather thin
1/2 cup frozen peas
French herb mix, about 1 teaspoon
salt and pepper
1 package puff pastry, cut into 8 squares big enough to top the chosen baking dishes
1 egg + 1 tsp water for egg wash

8 8-10 ounce ramekins or other appropriately sized dishes that can go into the oven

* The chicken and chicken stock

The other day I made roast chicken for dinner. I had stuffed it with chopped carrots and onion. The vegies didn't cook, but after dinner, I pulled all the left-over meat off the chicken, then I put the carcus and vegies into a pot and added a bunch of water, not enough to quite cover the chicken. I put on the lid and cooked for a while. Then I took off the lid and smushed down the chicken into the water, and cooked the whole lot for a while more. When it all looked quite cooked, with the bones all falling apart, I put the whole thing through a strainer - the cone shaped kind. I put the strained liquid back into the pot and cooked it a while longer to reduce it. Then I put it into a bowl and then into the refrigerator. When it was all cooled down the chicken fat was nice and solid on the top, and I scooped it off - saving it, as it was lovely rendered chicken fat. It was this remainder that I used in the pot pies - it was probably about 3 cups, but I didn't measure it.

So for the filling for the pies I got a large saucier, melted the stick of butter and added the onions. I cooked those for a while, until the onions seemed tender, and then I added the flour, and cooked that for about 2 minutes. Then I quickly whisked in the chicken broths, stirring vigorously to make sure there were no lumps. I then added the carrots. With hind sight, I think that I would have put the carrots in a bowl with a bit of water, cover them with plastic wrap, and cooked them for a couple minutes in the microwave, as it took them a while before they were cooked. So when the carrots seemed well on their way to being cooked, I added the potatoes. These I then cooked for about 10 minutes. then I added the chicken, mushrooms and peas and simmer the whole thing for about 5 minutes.

I had preheated my gas oven to 400 degrees. The filling that I made would probably fill 8 pies, but I only made 4. I used 10 oz. soufflé dishes. These are big enough for a dinner for a man. I did not eat all of mine, and I think maybe a 6 oz dish would have been enough. But anyway, I filled the dishes. Got my puff pastry squares cut to size and brushed then with egg wash, and press them down onto the dishes. Then I baked them for 20 minutes.

This Go-To Dish by Brat Pack good girl Molly Ringwald, now grown-up author of Getting the Pretty Back, is a no-frills roasted chicken. Cooked in a scorching 500°F oven, Molly’s chicken was adapted from microwave queen Barbara Kafka’s simple recipe. Here Molly adds some lemons and onions to deepen the flavors of the pan sauce. Serve with a potato gratin or simple root vegetables.

Game plan: Molly recommends making sure your oven is clean. At such high temperatures, a greasy oven can smoke out your kitchen.

Ms. Vy’s Keffir Lime Chicken

Trinh Diem Vy is a third generation Vietnamese cook and is considered one of the country’s most reputable restaurateurs. During a trip to Hoi An a few years ago I had the opportunity to take a class at her famous Morning Glory Cooking School and the experience was undoubtedly the highlight of my time in Vietnam. While her relatively young age, short stature and attractive appearance may suggest otherwise, Ms. Vy is a force to be reckoned with in the kitchen. She wields a machete like peeler at lightening speed to strip a green papaya into fine shreds, all the while commanding a brigade of cooks around her to line up mise en place for her next dish. Her two hour tutorial in Vietnamese cookery is interwoven with personal anecdotes of her childhood spent in the kitchen and a comprehensive description of regional ingredients and their effect on health. It is a wealth of information that is rivaled only by the flavor of the food she produces.
A clear standout is her recipe for keffir lime barbecued chicken, which can also be made using tofu as a substitute. Its secret lies in a marinade layered with fish sauce, finely chopped lime leaves, lemongrass, brown sugar and chilies among other things. Its flavor reflects quintessential Southeast Asian cuisine, an intriguing balance of salty, sour, sweet and spicy. The predominant flavor of citrus and fruity heat from the chilies melds with brown sugar into a tangy, caramelized crust on the chicken. A cold tangle of crunchy green papaya, served the traditional way with lime juice, peanuts and fried shallots, is the perfect accompaniment to this dish. It creates a delicious contrast in temperature, flavor and texture in a way that balances rather than detracts from the meal.
If you are looking for way to broaden your barbecue repertoire this summer, this enticing spin on grilled chicken is both healthful and insanely good. My guess is you have yet to taste anything like it. There are only two things to consider before jumping in with both feet to make it. First, you need to locate a supplier of fresh keffir lime leaves and Thai basil. Fortunately there are several options online if you don’t have a local source. Secondly, the marinade requires a fair amount of slicing and dicing so you should allow at least thirty to forty minutes of prep time. The majority of this dish can be made in advance, making it a great choice for entertaining a large crowd. It also pairs terrifically well with beer, making it a near perfect choice for this summer’s outdoor barbecue soiree.

Grilled Spicy Chicken Thighs

This is one of my favorite ways to prepare chicken! The skin is crisp and the meat is so full of flavor. Did I mention my special hawt marinade? This recipe will make you want to pour a glass of lemonade and have a BBQ with your friends.


  • Chicken Thighs
  • Hawt Mess Sauce
  • Jalapeño Wine Lemonade
  • Jalapeño Wine Salt
  • Brown & White Sugar
  • Molly's Spicy Idahoan Blend

Oma & Popies Hawt Mess Sauce
Potter’s Jalapeño Wine Lemonade
Potter’s Jalapeño Wine Salt
Molly’s Spicy Idahoan Blend 1. Marinade bone-in and skin-on chicken thighs in 1 cup of Hawt Mess Sauce and 1 cup of Jalapeño Lemonade for at least 1 hour
2. Remove from marinade and roll the chicken in a mixture with a ratio of 2/3 brown & white sugar to 1/3 Jalapeño Wine salt and Molly’s Spicy Idahoan blend
3. Grill on medium-high heat for 6-8 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature hits 165 degrees The sugar will form a crispy crust and may get dark/blackened, but tastes amazing!
Let rest a few minutes and enjoy!

Molly's Chicken

Tip: Molly cooks long julienne strips of carrot with the chicken, and blends cream of chicken soup and sour cream with the pan drippings. She prepares broccoli on the side, and pours the sauce over the broccoli, carrots, and chicken. This recipe is a slightly different version.
