Drunken Noodles (Pad Kee Mao) Recipe Thai Noodle

If you love Thai food, then you’re probably already familiar with drunken noodles, or pad kee mao. There are a few theories about the origin of the name, but the most common explanation is a simple one: these noodles are perfect after a night of drinking with friends.

Thai basil is often easier to get in Western markets, and it works great in this recipe. Thai basil and holy basil have their own special flavor that’s missing from regular old Italian basil, so my rule is that you must use one of these two types.

Ingredients
For the chicken & marinade:

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 12 ounces sliced chicken thighs or chicken breast

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon oil

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch


For the rest of the dish:

  • 8 ounces wide dried rice noodles

  • 1½ teaspoons brown sugar, dissolved in 1 tablespoon hot water

  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce (Thai soy sauce preferred)

  • 1 teaspoon dark soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce

  • 2 teaspoons oyster sauce

  • pinch of ground white pepper

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced

  • ¼ teaspoon fresh grated ginger

  • 2 shallots, sliced (about ⅓ cups)

  • 1 scallion, julienned into 3-inch pieces

  • 4 Thai red chili peppers, deseeded and julienned

  • 1 cup loosely packed holy basil or Thai basil

  • 5 to 6 pieces of baby corn, split in half (optional)

  • 2 teaspoons Shaoxing wine


Instructions

  1. Work the two tablespoons of water into the chicken with your hands until the chicken absorbs the liquid. Add the soy sauce, oil and cornstarch, and mix until the chicken is evenly coated. Set aside for 20 minutes.

  2. Follow the directions on the rice noodle package to prepare your noodles. What I usually do is prepare a stainless steel bowl with hot tap water to soak the noodles for about 15 minutes. Then I just drain them and set aside.

  3. Stir together the dissolved brown sugar/water mixture, soy sauces, fish sauce, oyster sauce, and white pepper in a small bowl and set aside.

  4. Heat your wok until it's close to smoking, and spread 2 tablespoons of oil around the perimeter of the wok. Add the chicken and let it sear for 1 minute on each side until it's about 90{2d7fb2cd46cd928d9de02a869c5b2afe200e2235581daebb84a076beaadd7563} cooked. Remove from the wok and set aside. If the heat was high enough and you seared the meat correctly, your wok should be still clean with nothing sticking to it. If not, you can wash the wok to prevent the rice noodles from sticking.

  5. Continue with the wok on high heat and add 1 tablespoon of oil, along with the garlic and grated ginger.

  6. After a few seconds, add the shallots. Stir fry for 20 seconds and add the scallions, chili peppers, basil, baby corn and shaoxing wine. Stir-fry for another 20 seconds and add in the rice noodles. Use a scooping motion to mix everything for another minute until the noodles warm up.

  7. Next, add the prepared sauce mixture and stir-fry at the highest heat for about 1 minute until the noodles are uniform in color. Take care to use your metal spatula to scrape the bottom of the wok to prevent sticking. Add the seared chicken and stir-fry for another 1 to 2 minutes.
