Chicken Pad Thai – Keto Friendly Recipe

When I was a carboholic, there was a place called Jacky’s Galaxie in Bristol, Rhode Island, where I got my fix for chicken pad thai at least three times per week for lunch. It came with soup and salad (healthy, right?), and I always got a side of crab rangoon (not so healthy). I’d never loved another pad thai before and never did again, until I started keto and spent several weeks working up a keto-friendly version that includes all the peanutty and noodly goodness I craved.

Notes

RECIPE TIP You can add sliced red onions and shredded carrots to your pad thai to make it more authentic, cooking them briefly after you scramble the eggs, but keep an eye on the carb count.
