Easy Chicken Pad Thai

This is probably one of the easiest meals to make in the world, and yet good for you! The stir-fry rice noodles are gluten free and you get a touch of veggies and lots of protein from this meal! This was the favorite amongst the group last weekend at my Thai Kitchen House Party. Everyone wanted this recipe so that they could have a Thai night at home.  You can find the original recipe on the Thai Kitchen Website
