My husband loves Thai food, so I was inspired to create this recipe for him! If you like Thai inspired flavors, you’ll love this dish too! It has become a family favorite in our house. This recipe has the perfect blend of smooth and spicy Thai flavors. I used Smooth Operator peanut butter for this recipe, but if you love spice, I suggest using The Heat is On peanut butter for an extra kick. Serve the Thai chicken on sandwich buns and top with the fresh ginger slaw.
