The Best Thai Chicken
I love Thai recipes and I am addicted to sweet chili sauce…the sticky sweet, gooey, with a tint of heat orange-color sauce that goes so well on everything!
Sweet Chili Chicken
I developed this sweet chili chicken recipe because I love the idea of crispy chicken with the sauce.
My recipe is so easy. Take some chicken, cut into pieces, battered, deep-fried and then toss and stir fry in the wok or skillet with some garlic, sweet chili sauce and lime juice.
To serve, garnish and top with sesame seeds and chopped cilantro and you have a quick, easy, and delicious dish.
This recipe is picky eater friendly, as my son actually asked to try this dish. He ate so many pieces of the chicken without even realizing that he was eating spicy chilies!
