Shopbop Friends and Family + Thai Chicken Saute

Whoop whoop Happy Tuesday Y'all!! Shopbop just announced their Friends and Family sale!! Take 25% off of your purchase with no minimum!! Use code SPRING25 to save!! 

Perfect time to grab up these sandals!! 
















And these wedges, which I own and LOVE!!! 



Also worth the mention, my maxi dress here is now marked down too!! And all Gorjana is included in the sale!! (pretty much the best jewelry ever.)


If you are anything like me, I had you at the word 'Thai'!  I have never tasted a Thai dish that I didn't love!  Not going to lie, when I found this one I was a little skeptical.  It just looked way too easy!  I am glad I gave it a go because it is knock your socks off good! 

I figured since it was a spicy dish I would serve the kids something different, but about halfway through the meal, Taylor was eating it right off her daddy's plate, and then begging for more.  It looks like my girl is going to love spicy food just like her parents! 

If you love Thai food, easy meals, and a little kick, make this ASAP!!!  Todd said he hopes I put this one on a weekly rotation around here. 

And this is from cooking light, so it's pretty healthy too :) 


I ended up using at least two tbsp of cornstarch.



Ingredients

(3 1/2-ounce) bag boil-in-bag rice $
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast tenders
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon fish sauce
4 teaspoons canola oil, divided
1 cup sliced onion $
2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
1 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World)
1/2 cup light coconut milk $
2 tablespoons Sriracha (hot chile sauce, such as Huy Fong)
1 tablespoon sugar $
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
lime wedges

Preparation

Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Keep warm.
Toss chicken with cornstarch and fish sauce. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken to pan; sauté 5 minutes. Remove chicken from pan. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil in pan. Add onion, garlic, and ginger to pan; sauté 1 minute. Return chicken to pan; cook 1 minute or until done. Stir in coconut milk, Sriracha, sugar, and juice; cook 45 seconds or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle each serving with 1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro. Serve chicken mixture over rice with lime wedges.

Note:


Use less hot sauce for milder flavor.
