I have been making pad thai for a few years and then I got this recipe from my friend Angie and LIFE HAS CHANGED! So easy and delicious.
2 tbsp olive oil
1 package of vegan chicken strips
4 cloves garlic minced
3 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
1/2 cup jarred pad thai sauce (I like Thai Kitchen brand)
1 1/2 cups water
7 oz rice noodles
1 cup Carrot matchsticks
1/2 each red and yellow pepper, sliced
4 green onions, sliced
1/3 cup chopped peanuts
1/3 cup fresh chopped cilantro
Directions: Add olive oil, chicken, garlic, soy sauce, pad thai sauce, water and rice noodles to Instant Pot in that order, leaving noodles floating slightly above other ingredients. Set to manual and pressure cook on high for 2 minutes. Instant Pot will take about 10 minutes to pre-heat and then 2 minutes to cook. When complete, press cancel and do a quick release of the steam, waiting until the pressure gauge drops back down and the lid is safe to open.
Add carrot matchsticks, bell peppers and half of peanuts, tossing carefully with tongs. Place lid back on and let sit for 5 minutes.
Remove lid and serve, then top with green onions, remaining chopped peanuts and cilantro. Enjoy!
