QUICK & EASY THAI BASIL CHICKEN


Thai food is my favorite! If you ever need a list of the best Thai restaurants in Atlanta – I’d be happy to send you a list. But when you want to eat your favorite foods weekly, you have to start making them on your own. Not necessarily just to save money, but also because you need to know what goes into your body. Lately, on Instagram stories, I’ve been sharing cooking adventures with you and my Thai Basil Chicken is on of my most highly requested recipes. This recipe so quick and easy to make. You can literally take it from the fridge to table is less than 30 minute, which makes it a weekday favorite. You asked, I delivered. The recipe is below, enjoy! Be sure to tag me in any photos if you end up making the dish!
