This Chicken Pad Thai recipe uses ZENB Penne Pasta as the base for this delicious dish. You'll enjoy the classic flavor combination while getting in a good source of protein. If you'll prefer to have a meatless dish, you can swap the chicken for firm tofu and enjoy the flavors just the same.


  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sambal oelek (Asian chili garlic paste)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 box (12 ounces) ZENB Penne Pasta made from 100% Yellow Peas, uncooked
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted, unsalted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves



Cook ZENB Pasta as directed on package. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta cooking water; drain. Whisk fish sauce, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar and sambal in small bowl.


Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large skillet on medium-high heat until shimmering. Add chicken; cook 10-12 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Transfer chicken to clean plate.


Heat remaining oil in same skillet. Add onions and peppers; cook 6-8 minutes until tender-crisp. Add pasta, reserved pasta water, sauce mixture and chicken to skillet. Mix gently until well combined. Sprinkle with green onions, peanuts and cilantro before serving.
