Lest you all think we only eat cookies and sweets in the Sewell house I thought I’d show you another one of my favorite chicken recipes. Asian cuisine is one of our favorite things and EASY is always a goal of mine. And this recipe for Thai Chicken takes care of both of those two categories!! It’s easy AND Asian with only 7 ingredients. This is one of those meals that I’ve been cooking for what seems like forever. I don’t really even remember where I got the recipe from. But it is always so good to sit down to supper with this on the table.Dice up half of a red bell pepper.Cut one jalapeno in half and then in quarters and remove the ribs and seeds. If you prefer a little heat you can leave the seeds in. Finely mince.Mince up 4 cloves of garlic.Saute all of this in a little bit of olive oil.Cut about 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts into bite size pieces. And season with salt and pepper. Notice I use a completely different cutting board and a completely different knife for raw poultry.Add the chicken to the skillet with the peppers and garlic.Once the chicken is browned, add 2 tbs of honey, 2 tbs of soy sauce (did you know that La Choy brand is gluten free?) and 1/4 c of water. Cover and let this simmer until the chicken is cooked through.
Serve it over Jasmine rice. I LOVE Jasmine rice, by the way!! I use it all the time in the place of regular white rice.You can top this with a little bit of fresh chopped basil if you’d like. And of course, when you eat Asian in the Sewell house, you MUST use chopsticks!
