Thai inspired chicken with a spicy and creamy peanut sauce as a meal with easy noodles & vegetables!
When I was writing this I was thinking about how much I have eaten this meal in the past few months…it’s more than I would like to admit. It just seems to have every element that I love! Creamy sauce, fresh vegetables, spicy chicken… It’s a well-rounded meal that is good hot or cold! Yep, eating it cold is totally normal.
Peanut sauce is one of those flavors that always brings back childhood memories when I eat it. I grew up with my mom making this, as it’s a popular side for fries and chicken in the Netherlands, where she is from. I actually called her before I ever tried my own asking for advice on ingredients. The sauce can be played around with in terms of spice and texture, but I definitely wouldn’t omit it.
Clearly I was testing the best way to top the meal with the peanut sauce. It will hopefully look prettier than mine…
