I do love Thai food but whilst I do a pretty damn good job of sourcing some global ingredients, those from Thailand often leave me coming up empty. So this Thai style chicken stir fry is a compromise when it comes to ingredients but there is certainly no compromise in flavour. One of the ingredients I lament not being able to buy is lemongrass, I love the stuff and try as I might I have never managed to grow it either. It is very hit and miss whether or not I can get fresh lemon grass after a 320km round trip so always have some lemongrass paste at home to feed the need for Thai style flavours. Stir fry chicken is actually pretty common in our house all year round and this is one of loads that I do fairly regularly, although this or my kung pao chicken are probably our favourite. Having food that packs such a punch of flavour really quickly is definitely always a bonus!
In other news we are all a bit confuddled right about now, most of our work for the year is done, I just have the slight matter of 2 tonne of wood to split for our winter wood and then all the bluster of our ‘summer’ lives is over and already the amount of free time we have has seemed to explode. It is always the same for us at this time of year, we go from running around like crazy people for 7-8 months and then all of a sudden we have a ‘what now’ moment. However this winter we seem to have picked our mojo and that mojo seems to be sport, we seem to have adopted a handball, waterpolo and football, real football not hand egg 😉 and we are traipsing around the Hungarian Great Plain watching as much as we can. I have to admit the quality of the football is pretty poor, however I am absolutely blown away by the water polo, as far as I am concerned these people are some freakish amphibious people capable of doing things that the human body really should be incapable of, nevertheless incredible entertainment.
But I digress, back to food, I am currently working on a new e-book that subscribers to my site get for free and it is all based around fakeaways and of course there will be the occasional stir fry chicken in there. However here is a quick question for you, when you think takeaway what do you think?
