Tips for the Instant Pot Chicken pad Thai recipe

  • You can use tamari or coconut amino instead of soy sauce.
  • You don’t need to add any salt because soy sauce will make the Instant Pot pad Thai salty enough.
  • Add a dash of hot sauce if you like a kick of spice in your chicken pad Thai.
  • Make sure to rinse the noodles in cold water if they’re done cooking before the chicken. If noodles are a little undercooked, let them sit in the Instant Pot with chicken and sauce for a coupe more minutes.
  • If you want to switch up veggies, use any vegetable that would steam nicely in about 3 minutes like zucchini, baby corn, or soy sprouts…
  • Add scrambled eggs to the chicken pad Thai if you want a more substantial dish.

Can we cook the rice noodles straight into the Instant Pot?

Yes, you can, but we found that they become mushy most of the time. If you want to try, arrange the noodles on top of other ingredients, without soaking too much in the sauce. So the steam will cook the noodles without leaving them overcooked.

How to keep the Instant Pot pad Thai leftovers?

You can keep the chicken pad Thai leftovers for 1 or 2 days in an airtight container in your refrigerator. Sprinkle a little bit of water before reheating, then microwave for 1-2 minutes until heated through. But keep in mind the noodles will get soggy and reheating will make the dish mushy.
