You’ll Love The Flavor And Easy Clean-Up Of This Pad Thai Dish!

It’s always great to have quick recipe in your arsenal…

We love trying to recreate some of our favorite restaurant dishes at home, but often it becomes a lot more work than we had originally anticipated. Fortunately, that’s not the case with this easy, one-pot chicken pad thai, which is a breeze to make and is packed with flavor (with the perfect touch of spice). Not only does this dish taste great, but the fact that it’s a one-pot meal makes it the perfect option to have ready in our arsenal for when we want a quick and easy dinner…. It also means fewer dishes to clean up for whomever is stuck on kitchen duty that night! Win-win!
