Garlic Chives with Sliced Chicken Recipe

Garlic Chives with Sliced Chicken

Whether you need another delicious dish to round out that Thai food dinner you're planning, or just want to have a nice one-dish meal for lunch, nothing beats the bright color and authentic Thailand flavor of this dish made with chicken and flowering garlic chives. It's simple to make and has just a few ingredients. We start by slicing boneless and skinless chicken breast into wafer thin slices and stir fry it together with garlic and long, bright green chives. The result is chicken that is delicate and juicy, wrapped in slightly wilted, yet still crisp chives. As a main dish it goes well with other foods and brightens the overall meal. As a one-dish meal meal with rice it is very satisfying, but I like to skip the rice and just eat it alone, making it like a nice chicken and chive salad.
