how to make creamy Thai chicken – the details,

You will love how easy this chicken recipe is. First, you toss chicken cubes with ginger, sesame oil, honey, tamari sauce and black pepper. Then using a large skillet, quickly brown the chicken pieces. To the same skillet, add the bok choy and lightly charr around the edges. Remove the chicken with the bok choy and make the creamy coconut sauce with lightly cooked veggies. The sauce takes just minutes to cook. Finish the sauce with fresh lime juice and herbs.

When it comes to Thai food, you can serve it with rice noodles or rice. Jasmine rice accentuates the Thai flavours and makes everything more delicious. Both, rice noodles and rice are naturally gluten-free, making them a good choice to add to this Thai meal. When it comes to thick sauces, I love to add noodles. I can’t help it, but noodles are my favourite carbs, especially when the noodles are heavily coated with a delicious sauce. Thai noodles are typically made from rice, and you can use either thick or thin rice noodles. Rice noodles cook very quickly and are probably the easiest noodles to prepare.

the toppings, 

To make any meal extra special, it is all about the toppings. However, this Thai dish is delicious as is add some toppings, and this chicken dinner will step up to another level. I would recommend fresh herbs like cilantro or, if you can get Thai basil. And, fresh lime juice is a must in Thai dishes. Everything else you add, like hot chilli sauce or crushed pepper flakes, is all about the flavours you desire.
