I’m a big fan of Thai food and all the flavorful sauces, but I often forget how easy it is to make at home. So when I recently came across a Thai chicken dish in Rachael Ray Magazine (from the new cookbook Dinner: Changing the Game by Melissa Clark), I felt inspired to give it a shot. I made a few tweaks to suit our family and am excited to share the outcome of this Easy Thai Chicken and Rice recipe with you below!
This recipe does call for lemongrass, which can sound intimidating, but it’s not as hard to pull off as it sounds. Lemongrass is sold in the produce section and we’ve found it at most mainstream stores. You simply trim it, remove the outer layer, and chop it up fine like you would for garlic or ginger. It adds a lot of flavor, so I would not recommend skipping it in this dish – enjoy!
