Thai Basil Sambal Noodles

thai basil sambal

About a week and a half ago, we were challenged to put together a recipe that was inspired by some of the delicious options over at P.F. Chang’s.  This recipe was a result of that experiment, as was the recent ginger chicken.  This is a delicious dish, and I would definitely recommend it.

Our spicy coconut sambal sauce is definitely spicier, but this can be easily circumvented by deseeding the serrano peppers or using a milder pepper in its place.  Either way, this was a dish that had the house smelling amazing for hours, and I think you’ll really enjoy it.

Ginger Chicken with Broccoli


Believe it or not, Brent and I have never eaten at P.F. Chang’s until Stacy invited us among others to join her in a re-creation party, P.F. Chang style. Of course we wanted to participate, but having no idea what the food was like (other than knowing it was asian-themed casual dining).

A few days after Stacy’s invite, we ordered take-out from P.F. Chang’s. Brent got the gluten-free thai basil sambal noodles with shimp (from the new “Inspired” menu–recreated here) and I got the gluten-free ginger chicken with broccoli. Before diving in, set aside a small container of each of our dinner items for taste-testing during our actual cooking experiment the next day.
