Eating With Ellie - Thai Pad Noodle Salad

Thai pad noodle salad.   The recipe I simply would have overlooked normally since no shellfish for me.  But I decided to substitute chicken and give it a try.   Am I glad I did!   Maybe I was just in the mood for it. But honestly it was the BEST lunch I've had in a long time.  I wanted to eat the entire bowl.   I halved the recipe so it really makes a lot.  Lucky for Chandler he gets the other half for his lunch today and I am jealous.  I will make this again and again but I will most likely leave out the scrambled egg. I did not think it added anything to the salad.   I used rotisserie chicken for the ease of it.  Tai-pad  noodles, carrots, Napa cabbage, fresh basil with a tangy dressing made from siricha sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, olive oil and lime juice!  I left out the mint and peanuts.  The cabbage had a nice crunch to it.  And the rice noodles were oh so good!  
Thank you Glennis for choosing this!

Fantastic! I also loved this and can see myself making it a lot more. I put some shredded roasted chicken on top for my husband and just ate mine with the egg. There are leftovers for tomorrow and I'll put prawns on that one.

I made it with chicken also and I liked it warm better than as a cold salad. I agree with, this is a winner.

Looks wonderful. I didn't get to this last week so I will make it for makeup week. From all accounts, it was a hit with everyone but Margaret, which surprises me as she loves shrimp! Your use of chicken looks wonderful as well, I could be very happy with that!
