This recipe of Thai Chicken and Pepper Stir Fry is a gorgeous light weekday meal for when you are looking for a quick and easy recipe. I just love Thai food, but I never had the confidence to try and cook it. If this is how you feel, don’t worry, cooking Thai food is probably the easiest there is. It involves a lot of stir frying and noodle cooking, so it really can’t be that difficult, right?
Thai cuisine is also quite healthy. It involves light and fresh ingredients with very specific and aromatic flavors like garlic, chili and ginger. This internationally acclaimed cuisine bases its flavors on a perfect balance between sweet, sour, salty and bitter tastes. It really does taste clean and aromatic when the balance is met; no wonder it is such a popular worldwide cuisine.
Luckily living in a big city like Johannesburg, Thai restaurants are everywhere. Like most other international cuisines such as Indian, Chinese and Vietnamese restaurants, they can be easily spotted at malls or small shopping centers. The difficult thing is separating the ‘weak from the obsolete’ which is another story.
Anyway, as it goes, cooking Thai food at home can be really easy. The great thing about this recipe is that I used the ingredients I had in my pantry. I seriously didn’t need anything else. Sure there might be a few ingredients that are not standard for Thai cooking in my recipe and I really don’t consider myself a Thai expert, but I had to improvise with what I got to create a great Thai inspired meal.
So here is your ‘almost’ Thai Chicken and Pepper Stir Fry recipe. I hope you enjoy!
