I love Thai food although I rarely prepare it at home. This sticky Thai peanut chicken is one I am familiar with and can recommend as a great home meal that is really flavorful and easy to prepare. It is not expensive and can be made with chicken thighs, a cut up whole chicken or just breasts as your family prefers. It does have a lot of ingredients and two separate steps to the dish. So set aside a day when you feel up to a new experience and a new taste sensation for you and your family if youve not enjoyed Thai before.

This recipe can also have the kids helping out. First, when you go to the grocery store to pick up some ingredients that you might not keep on hand on a regular basis such as fresh ginger or Sriracha or Asian hot sauce. Your kids can be sent to scour the shelves and learn where to find ingredients like these ones. You only use a tiny amount of each of these ingredients, so dont worry that your family might find it too spicy. Thai foods claim to fame is that it combines a number of spices and flavors to create a complex of flavors that include sweet and warm with just a bit of snap to keep it exciting and exotic.

Kids can also help out at home by getting out the things you need from the fridge and cupboards to make the sauce and setting them in order for you. This will allow you to pull together the sauce quickly without leaving anything out. This method of pulling out all your ingredients and setting them in order of use is known as mise en place. It can save you a lot of heartache, not to mention the problem of Now, what do I do? if you start making something before checking to be sure you have everything you need for the dish. Your kids will be happy to know what a help they are to you in the kitchen, too, and teach them about how to organize your cooking set up to ensure best results.

Thai food is well known for its balance of flavors, especially hot and sweet. Common ingredients found in Thai food include onions, garlic, ginger, some kind of hot Asian sauce made from chiles, lemon grass and other ingredients. Dishes are often quick to make, stir-fried and served with rice. White rice is more traditional, but you can substitute brown rice for its greater fiber and protein without sacrificing a lot in terms of classical taste.

Any way you make it, Thai will become a hallmark affair in your household. Why not try it tonight?
