This is a traditional Pad Thai recipe used by a friend's mother. You can use chicken, pork, beef, tofu, or a combination. You may want to start with less pepper, and work your way up.

  • 1 (12 ounce) package rice noodles
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into bite-sized pieces
