Hello Friends!

Wow here we are in August already! This week was a busy one for us as we went camping for a few days. It was so nice to get away under the stars and be away from home for a while. 

This Thai Chicken recipe is an easy one when you are looking to put dinner or lunch on the table quickly. We love the versatility of chicken and this is another chicken favorite. 


how to make Thai chicken

Crispy Thai chicken just takes a fewf main ingredients:

Chicken Breasts  – Boneless Chicken breast or breast tenders (which are usually cheaper), work best for this recipe. 

Bread Crumbs –You will want to use plain bread crumbs for this recipe. You can use boxed or homemade crumbs made out of stale bread or crackers. 

Peanut Butter – You will want to use creamy peanut butter for this recipe. I have not tried it with almond butter.

The key is in the marinade and breading.

I would be curious about almond butter, or even cashew butter, but peanut is such a Thai thing so I love what you do. Looks gorgeous.
