Thai Basil Chicken
Thai food is one of my absolute favourite foods ever and sometimes especially when I am trying to avoid takeout or eating out, I still need my Thai fix. Say hello to my go-to Thai Basil Chicken, all the flavour of takeout with minimal fat or carbs and filled with a little over 30g of protein.
This quick and easy in a hurry dinner, is so beautiful and colourful even the fussiest eater will be asking for seconds.
