thai chicken skewers with black rice

thai chicken skewers

I love Thai food and I make it at home often. I’ve had a lot of people tell me they’re intimidated by it, which is understandable when some of the ingredients aren’t what we’re necessarily used to here in the US, but the basic flavors of Thai are readily available here and, because the flavors are rather bold, you don’t need to put a lot of effort into it to get a lot of flavor out of it.

This easy recipe is another one that comes from Cozi’s new Dinner Decider app (which I’ve already told you how much I love!) and our entire family polished off the whole thing with no leftovers. I added some black rice, used chicken tenders instead of slicing breasts and made my own peanut sauce (although I’ve taste-tested some jarred versions and they’re actually quite good, pick them up in your international grocery aisle). This recipe was solid and needed no other changes. I only had time to marinate it the minimum two hours it calls for and it still turned out perfectly!
