Pad Thai Rice Noodles and Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Butter Sauce

Thai cuisine is rich in coconut milk and nice aromatic food recipes with peanuts. It is very easy to prepare and cook it quickly, it will also taste good. For my Hubby's B'day cooked Thai food recipes, i have posted few before and now am posting the other 2 recipes from the menu. I used the store bought pad thai sauce, it's bit of tangy taste. The main ingredient in Thai cuisine can see lot of peanuts in most of recipes, they will use it as whole or in crushed or in paste form. It gives aroma to the recipes and makes good taste, here for Chicken satay i made spicy peanut butter sauce. Woow!!! it tasted yummy with the chicken satay, chicken satay is bit much spicy and the sauce is mild spicy so this combination worked out very well. We enjoyed all the recipes on that day, very pleasant not much spicy. Here, the recipe for the Pad thai rice noodles and for Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut butter sauce as follows.



1.Rice noodles - 200 gm
2.Canola Oil - 2 tbsp
