Looking for a unique way to spice up your chicken? Well, you’ve come to the right place! There is nothing like the exotic Thai flavours to bring some life to a common piece of poultry. The best part about this dish is that it is super easy to make and tastes fantastic! You can’t go wrong giving this recipe a try!
Believe it or not there was a point in my life where I wasn’t procreating, running and cooking all the time, which feels like a million years ago. I love to travel and I truly appreciate what this great world has to offer.
Currently, I am responsible for the care of many lives and whisking off to exotic lands does not mesh well with weekend soccer and basketball games. So bringing a small part of the world into my home by creating a Thai dish will bring back some wonderful memories of my travels to Southeast Asia.
Thai food does have a reputation for being a bit on the spicy side. To accommodate the 4 young palates in my home, I omitted the hot chili that might have them running out the door instead of giving me the “Yum” that all moms long to hear.
With the perfect balance of ingredients, this dish has the abundant, rich flavor you would expect from a Thai dish, without the flaming aftertaste. Of course, keeping it gluten-free and dairy-free was a must so Kid 1 could enjoy this meal with the rest of the gang.
