We HAVE to talk about this meal that I am obsessed with at the moment!
20-Minute Spicy Thai Noodles.
These noodles are based on some of my favorites Thai noodle dishes – drunken noodles (pad kee mao), pad Thai, and pad see ew. I took my favorite parts of each and essentially created Thai noodle heaven.
IT IS SO DELICIOUS. And packed with pretty much everything that tastes A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.
There are only three steps to creating the whole meal.
- cook the chicken (if you aren’t into chicken, you can do tofu or even some shrimp) and veggies in some coconut oil
- add in the sauce
- toss with the noodles
You see? So easy, try it tonight!
The base of the flavor begins with the coconut oil. The sauce is made with coconut milk, coconut sugar, soy sauce, sambal chili, rice wine vinegar, fresh garlic and ginger.
Ok, so lets talk noodles. I am currently loving Perfect Earth’s Gluten Free Rice Pasta [not sponsored, just really love this company!]. All of their products are USDA certified organic and made with the highest quality rice straight from the hills of Thailand. Perfect Earth is dedicated to working with local Thai farmers and providing them with with knowledge and tools for sustainable organic agriculture. They believe that food should be grown in a way that is good for our planet and good for the local farmers. And trust me, you can definitely taste the difference! For this dish I used the red rice and chia pasta but they have lots of different varieties. You can check them all out here.
Finally, the whole thing gets a generous sprinkle of sliced green onions, peanuts, and lime. Its the perfect dinner or lunch that takes no time at all!

I am just wondering how the soy sauce in the recipe is gluten free?
Hi Tom, there are many brands that make gluten-free soy sauce. Kikkoman’s gluten-free soy sauce is one of my favorites. There is also tamari soy sauce which most often does not contain wheat.
