Pad Thai is often referred to as Thailand's national dish; for this one, you'll be recreating the street food classic at home! You'll make a zingy pad Thai sauce with tamarind & lime to coat the chicken before mixing with slices of crunchy mange tout and rice noodles. (Dairy-free: see our FAQs for details.)
