Chicken and Shrimp Pad Thai

This week, I would like to suggest this delicious Shrimp and Chicken Pad Thai. What’s great about this sort of recipe is that you can easily substitute certain ingredients for those you have on hand. For example, you can replace the suggested vegetables with whichever ones you choose or you can use tofu instead of the shrimp and chicken as your source of protein. Enjoy!
