 Recipe Notes:
1. Noodles - Pad See Ew is traditionally made with Sen Yai contemporary rice noodles which might be wide, flat rice noodles. These are tough to deal with and fairly tough to find, even at Asian grocery shops - you have got to pass to a Thai grocery store.
Easiest to make use of wide, dried rice stick noodles. I use Pad Thai noodles, the widest you possibly can discover at supermarkets.
Fresh rice noodle - Feel unfastened to use, comply with the directions in Char Kway Teow to practice the rice noodles for cooking.
Other noodles - might be made with different noodles, contemporary or dried, rice or egg noodles. However, I don't suggest utilizing vermicelli as it's too thin for the solid flavours of the sauce.
2. Dark soy sauce has a superior flavour than regular and pale soy sauce, and stains the noodles brown. Can sub with regular soy, but noodles will now not be as darkish and flavour can also be just a little much less strong.
3. Normal soy sauce - I use Kikkoman. Or use pale soy sauce. 
4. Chicken - You can change the hen with different proteins appropriate for stir frying, even tofu or prawns.
5. Chinese Broccoli (Gai Lan, kai lan)If you cannot discover Chinese broccoli, you possibly can change with different leafy Chinese vegetables reminiscent of pak choy or bok choy. Or use broccolini - cut them in half lengthwise.
6. Nutrition per serving, assuming 3 servings.
