Pad Thai

Chicken and Spaghetti Squash Pad Thai

Pad Thai was a Friday night staple for me in college. This is a spin on one of the most popular Thai dishes, made with spaghetti squash and tons of veggies! To save time I like to chop my veggies and chicken ahead of time and set aside in the fridge until I want to prep this dish. I also used a food processor to slice the carrots and radishes very thinly.
