The Best Thai Chicken
I have an addiction. Yes. I am addicted to Thai sweet chili sauce. The sticky sweet, gooey, with a tint of heat orange-color sauce that goes so well on everything! Forget about Sriracha, I am happy when I have some Thai sweet chili sauce.
Because I love Thai chili sauce so much, I serve almost all my appetizers with them. It just never fails me or goes wrong on fried chicken wontons, Thai lettuce wraps, Thai shrimp cake, etc. But I wanted Thai sweet chili sauce on my main dish, too, and hence I developed this sweet chili chicken recipe.
The recipe is so easy. You take some chicken, battered and deep-fried, and then toss in the wok or skillet with some garlic, sweet chili sauce, lime juice, and garnish with sesame seeds and chopped cilantro. Quick, easy, and oh-so-tasty. What came as a big surprise was that my 4-year old son actually asked to try this dish, ate so many pieces of the chicken without even realizing that he was eating chilies (he can’t take anything spicy!).
I am definitely going to add this sweet chili chicken to my daily menu…it’s the first step to train my son to eat spicy food (so we can start eating our favorite spicy food again for dinners). But overall, this dish is mostly for anyone who love Asian food. It’s utterly delicious, appetizing, and SO good. Try this sweet chili chicken recipe and I am very sure you will thank me!
