Chicken Mango Curry

White Flowers

   If I'm not daydreaming about a warm delicious Mexican dish you better believe I've got Thai food on my mind. One thing that I love about Thai food is how naturally flavorful the food is by using herbs to bring a dish alive. On the rare occasion that my husband and I get a night out sans kids we often frequent the local Thai restaurant for delicious food I know won't disappoint!

 

     Basil has to be one of my favorite herbs and it's one I incorporated into this dish. One of the things I love about this dish is how versatile it is. You can omit the chicken for a vegan dish, add brown rice, or just eat it as it is! The mango adds a hint of sweetness and the coconut a creamy base. By making it at home you can ensure your ingredients are healthy and free of MSG and other harmful toxins.
