But that's just me. Good think I'm married to someone so stinkin nice.
So I may not always be nice when people come knocking on my door, but I am nice enough to have dinner ready for my hubby when he gets home. And this is what made our home "smell so good" last night. The best part about this meal is you can make it all in the morning and let it marinate all day and then just toss it all in a pan and in about 10 minutes you will also have a house that smells delicious...better than any glade plug-in (which make me gag anyway). I found the recipe on Tasty Kitchen, which was created by Ree from The Pioneer Woman. Who is absolutely amazing and perfectly witty....and might I add, she can definitely cook! If you ever need food inspiration or a good chuckle check out her blog. Now onto dinner from last night....
Apparently I have been on a Thai kick lately, but I was trying to use up the remaining vermicelli noodles I had left over from my new favorite salad. Couldn't let those beauties go to waste! So here it is in all its yumminess.....
Thai Honey Peanut Chicken:
Found from: Tasty Kitchen
- 1 pound Chicken, In Chunks
- 1/2 cup Soy Sauce
- 4 Tablespoons Honey
- 2 Tablespoon Lime Juice
- 2 teaspoon Minced Garlic (approximately 1 Large Clove)
- 2 Tablespoon Natural Peanut Butter (heaping Tablespoon Even Better)
- 1 teaspoon Curry Powder
- 1 teaspoon Sriracha (optional)
Mix ingredients and marinate chicken for 2-3 hours.
Cook chicken in the sauce over medium-high heat for 7-8 minutes or until chicken is done. Reduce heat to medium-low and add precooked veggies if desired. Serve topped with sesame seeds. ( I like to serve over either brown rice or rice noodles.)
To thicken sauce if needed: reduce heat to medium-low and add a cornstarch slurry (1 teaspoon cornstarch in 1 tablespoon water).
