Foodie Friday: Veggie & chicken pad thai

Hello lovely friends, it is Friday again!  And it is officially my last weekend at home till January!  Talk about a fun but crazy end to the year!  I am super excited to have some fabulous company this weekend!  And I just might be making some of this sweet recipe for us to eat!
It is that time of the week where I link up with a few of my favorite foodies! Farrah from Fairyburger, Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama, and Jess from Hello to Fit!! Our theme this week is veggie surplus!
I don’t think I even have an issue running out of veggies!  But having too many that start to go bad is something I have had happen way to many times.  I need to find a better balance with my produce purchases! I don’t think the strange weather has been helping my purchasing issues.  Ha
Since I had SO many extra veggies this week, I wanted to make something that used up as many as possible at one time! Enter the good old standby of pad thai!


Pad Thai with chicken and veggies

  • 1 lb chicken, cubed
  • 1 large red pepper
  • 1 large orange pepper
  • 2 cups broccoli, chopped into small peices
  • 1 cup raw broccoli slaw
  • 2-4 TBS coconut oil
  • Tamari to taste
  • Brown rice noodes



  1. Put 1-2 TBS oil in a large pan, add the chicken and cook till it is no longer pink in the middle.  Add Tamari to taste.
  2. In a seperate pan, cook all the veggies the same as the chicken.
  3. Cook the noodles as directed on the box.  Add some coconut oil and tamari when they are finished.
  4. Once everything is cooked, mix it all together and enjoy!
