Hey everyone, the husband here! I realized that I haven't written an original post here in quite some time. I have been busy with new role of Lynn support coordinator! I do a majority of the cleaning and cooking around the house, as my hours at work at much more flexible than hers. So what better post than a food post!
The kitchen I have in our new apartment is absolutely perfect! I have broken it in with bread, donuts, muffins, and a whole slew of home cooked meals but the one I will be writing about today is extra special. This is a dish that we first tasted in the streets of Portland at a little shop called Nong's Khao Man Gai. Khao Man Gai is a very simple dish from Thailand (one that we had on our honeymoon and it was absolutely spectacular). The ingredients in this dish are very simple and clean, but that is what makes it so good! Essentially it is just chicken over rice with vegetables and sauce, but it is by far one of my all time favorites! So why isn't this meal in my weekly rotation? Well, the sauce is what brings the entire dish together, and I have been unable to recreate it.
Thankfully our good friends Jojo and Jasmine brought us back a bottle of sauce on their recent trip to Portland! Here is what you need for this dish:
Now, recently I have had the bad habit of baking chicken because I got lazy. This really dried out the chicken and made it not awesome. This time I forced myself to grill it on the stove. I cut the chicken breast into horizontal slices and coated with lemon pepper and sea salt. I grilled all the chicken just as the rice was finishing. Plate with a bed of rice, a row of chicken and whatever assorted sides that you like. Just before serving pour a small amount of sauce over the chicken. Take your photos before mixing the sauce into everything and you have a super simple,. super tasty meal!
Hope you enjoyed this post, if you make this dish (or have had it in Portland/Thailand) tell us about it in the comments below!
