Thai Cashew Chicken
When it comes to flavor, nothing makes my mouth quite so happy as Thai food.
Traveling to Thailand in 2016, I saw first hand just how many ingredients go into making Thai food so tasty, and how complex it can be to get it "just right." When I came home, I was inspired to try to create a basic Thai spice that would cover the bases & give us "at home" cooks a good flavor profile.
The result is super yummy and gives you the power to create dishes that are a little different, totally flavorful and fun.
Thai Cashew Chicken is one of my favorites to whip up- this video not only shows how simple this Thai Cashew Chicken dish is to prepare, but you’ll see just how much fun Jackie and I had making it.
A delicious lean and green recipe that’s full of flavor, color and is so satisfying. It’s also a low-carb recipe, family friendly recipe and a great all-around chicken recipe.
