Chicken Pad Thai

It's worth the prepping. [Photograph: Yvonne Ruperti]

Notes: Make sure to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready to go before starting to cook. Rice sticks can be found in the Asian food aisle in most major markets. If you don't have palm sugar, light brown sugar can be substituted. Tamarind can be found in your local Asian/Indian market. It usually comes in a package of the pulp with the seeds. Chop the soaked dried shrimp if larger than 1/2 inch. A large skillet is essential to be able to toss all of the ingredients.
