Slow cooker Thai peanut chicken served over a scrumptious sticky coconut purple rice. Healthy, easy to make and perfect for meal prep or a weeknight dinner. This is a dish you’ll make again and again!
Our new home is in a diverse, wonderful area of Chicago with a variety of ethnic, chic restaurants. From Mexican and Thai, to Ethiopian and burger joints, our neighborhood boasts some of the most unique food in the city. A few weeks ago, Tony and I decided to try a new Thai restaurant that always seemed to be bustling with people, even during the weeknights.
When we arrived we were overwhelmed by over 250 items on the menu, but also the aroma of flavors enticing us to order everything. As we were seated, I noticed other customers slurping up broth from big steaming bowls of pho with thick noodles; you could even smell the green onions they garnished across the top of the soup. Immediately, Tony and I could tell that this place would become our neighborhood favorite. A gem of sorts.
