I love Thai food but when it comes to making my favorite dishes, I feel lazy. I really don’t want to trek to an ethnic market to gather ingredients. Thankfully, we have an easy family favorite recipe that tastes Thai but uses pantry staple ingredients.
The key to this great toss is well-marinated chicken and an abundance of sauce. It’s quick to fry up and even better to eat. I always indulge a bit too much with Thai.
Thai-Style Chicken Toss
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
3 medium green onions, cut in 2″ pieces
1 garlic clove, halved
16 oz. can bean sprouts, drained
optional: 1/4 cup finely chopped peanuts or pistachios
12 oz. linguine or other pasta, cooked
Cut chicken into thin slices. In bowl, mix chicken, ketchup, soy sauce, sugar, red pepper, and ginger. Marinate in refrigerator at least 30 minutes (or longer, even overnight).
