Recipe Review: Thai Chicken Cups

This was extremely easy to make, in fact I couldn’t believe how easy it was! A few chops here, and some pan searing there and you have yourself an easy meal! Plus you can even make a little extra for leftovers, because the veggies and chicken are easy to refrigerate and trust me it still tasted amazing. The only downside to this entire recipe was the fact that I had a hard time finding Coconut amino acids for my peanut sauce. I should have known Trader Joe’s would have them, but I sadly took my first trip to Safeway on account of the short amount of time I had to make dinner. For those of you not familiar with Coconut amino acids, this is just a fancy way of saying Paleo Soy Sauce. It has great flavor and can even be used to make your own jerky.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
