Recipe: Thai Chicken

Image ©

We tried this recipe last night and it was incredibly delicious.  And easy too!! It’s important to use chicken thighs with the skin on. My husband wanted to steal the crispy spicy sweet skin off my plate, but there was no way I was going to let him.  I also can’t recommend enough to you to try out the Plan to Eat website and sign up for a free trial.  It’s the best recipe capture and storage site ever!  I’ve got over 500 recipes in my recipe book there!
