thai chicken stew (gluten free)

I can’t believe it has taken this long to get this up on the Blog! This Thai Chicken Stew shows up often on the dinner table. The biggest reason is… it is so easy to make, it is really healthy, it only takes one pot and I can just go on and on!

The flavors are incredible and once you have the ingredients in your pantry, you will want to make this all of the time too. I think it might even taste better the next day, but there have been too many times where it is gobbled up in one sitting and I have no leftovers to wrap up.

It is warm and spicy and soothing, but I find myself craving it any season. It is best served with Organic White Basmati rice but I also make Cauliflower rice for a grain free option.
