This twist on chicken pad thai was way out of my comfort zone but totally worth it

 

Let me start this off by saying that I had and still have NO clue what I’m doing in the world of Indian and Thai cuisine, but, I love the spicy-sweet flavors. Now, before I even start to talk about the recipe, you should know that I completely made up this recipe with suggestions from the back of my curry paste container. Also, know that this is probably an incredibly Americanized version of this dish and I’m sure that this is nowhere near the correct way to prepare any of this. However, that being said, my family and I loved this version and it’s the flavors that work for my family and our flavor preferences. I chose to serve this with homemade naan bread and it was amazing, for those that are unfamiliar with it, it’s similar to a pita bread but better. Now that I’ve disclaimed the entire thing, let’s get to the ‘recipe’! Y’all let me know what you think!

1. 2 cups heavy whipping cream
