Dish of the Week: Thai Fish Sauce and Lime Chicken

June 11, 2008 | By | Comments (9)

Thaifishsauceandlimechicken I love fast dinners but I hate fast food. So I treasure my stash of quick-n-easy recipes that typically involve ingredients that I tend to have on hand in my pantry and fridge. These recipes are perfect for those days when I’m feeling too rushed to put much thought into dinner (which, for a new mom, means pretty much every day).

One of my favorite such recipes is this Thai Fish Sauce and Lime Chicken, which I discovered before I came to work for Cooking Light. I love the combination of peanuts, lime, and sweet chili sauce, which add a bright mix of flavors to what otherwise might be a boring chicken breast. Since my fridge usually contains more condiments than actual food, I usually have fish sauce and sweet chili sauce handy, so this dish is one of my stand-bys.

This recipe is part of one of my favorite stories (and a reader favorite, too): Chicken with 8 Simple Sauces. I keep in a laminated page in my recipe binder. (It’s also saved in my online recipe file, which I often access when I’m away from my own kitchen.)

What are your favorite quick-n-easy standbys? I’m always looking to add to my repertoire …

    The problem is that since they don’t actually stock their own products it often takes longer for you to receive your order, or they might be out of stock. But admit it; sometimes you give to be able to receive something in return, don’t
    you. Just think potato chips, pretzels, popcorn, those graham crackers, all different sorts
    of crackers, a cinnamon bun, a bagel, English muffins.

    I do believe all the ideas you’ve offered to your post. They’re very
    convincing and can definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are
    very short for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

    Sounds mouth watering. The lime triggered my appetite. Lime is a good appetizer though.
