Simple Thai Chicken

I'm a sucker for anything with coconut milk. My favorite is a Thai red curry. I could most likely swap the Sriracha in this recipe for a red curry paste, but my boys like Sriracha - so there you have it. This meal fits in my favorite, one-pot, comfort-food category. It's easy to make and easy to clean up. It does, though, have a mind of its own and comes out differently each time I make it - more saucey sometimes than others. Can't figure why, but I do enjoy the element of surprise! 

 

Ingredients

  • 1 1⁄2 pounds chicken breast either sliced or cubed

  • 2 tsp minced garlic

  • 1 tsp ground fresh ginger
