What is Thai food known for?
Thai food is different from other cuisines because of its use of contrasting flavors. Thai food often pairs hot spices with sweet, light citrus flavors like lime and mango. This recipe pairs sweet with spicy, warming, zesty and light flavors! I had a lot of fun creating this recipe.
Can I add in extra veggies?
Yes! I would recommend adding in extra vegetables before you add the chicken back into the pan. I have made this recipe with baby bok choy and snap peas before and it is a great way to add extra nutrients!
