Gluten Free Pad Thai

This is a staple at our house.
My kids call it noodles with chicken.
See how it serves two? That means we use 2 boxes.
See how it says right there on the package "Gluten-Free"? We love that.
And we love Thai Kitchen, as most of their products are, in fact, gluten free.

Gluten Free Pad Thai
(from a box)

1 box Original Pad Thai
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced thin
3 Tbsp oil
1 egg, scrambled
2 green onions, sliced
2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
1 lime
2 Tbsp peanuts, coarsely chopped

Boil 3 cups water. Add the noodles and remove from heat. Let the noodles soak for about 5 minutes, and then run under cold water.
In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp oil. Add egg and cook until done. Remove the egg from the skillet. Add the other 2 Tbsp oil and heat. Add the chicken to the skillet, cooking until just done, about 3-5 minutes. Add the noodles and the sauce packet. Stir fry for a few minutes, or until the noodles are done, adding water if necessary to keep them from sticking to the skillet.
Add the egg, green onions, cilantro, and squeeze the juice from the lime over the top. Stir for 1 minute and remove from heat.
Garnish with peanuts.

Hmm... I actually just bought that last week for the first time, I guess now I'll have to try it. It looks really yummy, and I love meals that come in boxes! Is that bad?! -Lindsay

I ate this several times a few years ago, it was also a staple in my pantry, but my last few times were a real disappointment. I don't know if they changed the sauce or what, but I stopped buying it.
