Thai Rice Noodles with Chicken

Thai Rice Noodles with Chicken
 This is a recipe that I clipped out of Cooking Light magazine back in 2009.  I have never cooked anything "thai" before.  This was so delicious.  

A couple things I might do different.  1) Cook the shallots with the green onions, ginger and garlic.   2) Not add chicken.   The flavor was so amazing, that the chicken just got in the way for me.
