Thai Fried Kuay-teow with chicken aka Thai Kuay Teow Kua Kai or Pad Thai Kai.
Simple, easy yet tasty fried noodles.  Tastes savoury and sweet much stronger flavour than the taste in most Chinese cooking.  The addition of ground black pepper adds more flavour and aroma to this simple fried noodle dish.
Recipe adapted from a Thai cookbook 'Healthy and Easy Thai Cooking' [my selected cookbook for Cookbook Countdown Event#9] with modifications.
[serves 2]
300 gm fresh flat rice noodles [kuay teow]
150 gm chicken breast - sliced thinly
2 eggs
2 tbsp cooking oil
2 tbsp preserved salted radish [chai por] - rinsed and drained
2 tbsp each of oyster sauce, light soy sauce and sugar
Dash of ground black pepper
Some chopped spring onions
some salad leaves
chilli sauce - optional
  1. Heat up wok, fry chai por until fragrant, add in oil and chicken.  Stir fry until cooked.
  2. Add in noodles and seasoning.  Stir and toss well until well mixed and leave to fry.  Push aside.
  3. Add in the eggs and fry until aromatic and well mixed.
  4. Sprinkle chopped spring onions.  Dish up to serve over some fresh salad leaves and chilli sauce if preferred.

Kimmy, your chicken pad thai is very inviting! I love koay teow, in fact it's my favorite compared to mee or bee hoon. But I have not had much success with koay teow. Always turns out horrible when I try to cook it.

Hi Phong Hong, when frying koay teow at home, it is best to use a non-stick pan/wok and fry with a pair of chopsticks. Sure jadi, don't worry.

Hi Kimmy,

Love your recipes and i love this one as well. Just wondering would i be able to not include the preserved radish, or totally not use it at all? Don't have it and I don't use it so don;t really want to buy it! Thanks.

Hi Kamal, perhaps you can add some chopped garlic for aroma and texture. I like the black pepper in this noodle.

What a delicious plate of pad thai! I love black pepper and white pepper, so I would definitely enjoy this a lot!

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, I realised that fried rice or noodles taste good with black pepper. Enjoyed it.

Margaret said...

This looks good. I wonder where I can find some of the radish. Do you think I could make this without it? YUM!

Kimmy said...

Hi Margaret, this preserved radish is available at Chinese grocery stores or Asian food stores. Your can fry this noodles without it.
