This Thai Basil Chicken with Rice Noodles is a family weeknight pleaser and made in under 30 minutes. You can serve it over rice noodles, rice, or even pasta.
Making dinners can be such a drag, am I right? I love making at home take-out for extra fun flavor for the family. My kids love international flavors and spices so these types of dishes are always a hit.
I can easily throw rice in the rice cooker or these rice noodles cook in only 2-3 minutes! What a win that is on a busy weeknight.
This Thai Basil Chicken with Rice Noodles is easily made with pantry staples. The sauce has simple ingredients that are easily adaptable to your taste and dietary needs...
- fish sauce
- oyster sauce
- tamari or soy sauce (if not gluten free)
- honey or sugar
- Thai sweet chili sauce
I love using ground chicken in dishes like this because each small piece of chicken gets smothered in the yummy sauce. Sometimes the big pieces of chicken just aren't as appetizing or they get overcooked.
