Pad See Ew

This is my husband’s favorite Thai dish.  It is an easy dish to throw together when we have leftover chicken, or a lot of fresh greens.  This recipe is a combination of recipes that I found in Food and Wine,, and  I haven’t found the wide rice noodles the restaurants serve with this dish; I substitute rice stick noodles.

  • 8oz package rice noodles
  • 1 pound (or more) bok choy, broccoli rabe, or other greens
  • 3 T vegetable oil
  • 6-9 medium garlic cloves, sliced paper thin
  • 1 chicken breast, broiled and shredded (optional)
  • 4 T soy sauce
  • 4 T oyster sauce
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 2-3 large eggs
  1. Place the noodles in a pot of boiling water.  Turn off the heat, and let soak until loose a pliable but not soft, about 5-8 minutes.  Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat 2 T of vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.  When it shimmers, add garlic and cook until it just begins to color, about 1 minute.  Add the greens and sauté until wilted.
  3. Add noodles, chicken, soy and oyster sauces, and sugar and cook until warmed through, about 3 minutes.
  4. Push noodle mixture to one side of the pan and add remaining 1 T oil to the pan.  Crack eggs into oil and scramble briefly until eggs begin to set, then let cook undisturbed until solid, about 3 minutes.  Mix eggs into noodles and serve.
