Dinner by Dad: Thai Chicken with Basil, Sauteed Green Beans, Spicy Mango-Green Apple Salad

I was over at my parents’ casa for dinner, and my dad cooked up an inspired Thai meal. Very easy, very healthy, very yummy.

  • The chicken dish was a recipe from Cooks Illustrated. It was served with brown rice. Here’s a similar-looking recipe. I love anything Thai basil, so of course this was a winner in my book.
  • The green beans were simply sauteed in sesame oil with garlic and fish sauce (plus salt/pepper). If you have sesame seeds, I’d recommend lightly toasting them and throwing those on as well.
  • The salad was made with strips of ripe mango and tart green apple mixed with lime juice, fresh cilantro, crushed red pepper (or you could use chili pepper for a spicier salad), and crushed peanuts. This take on Thai papaya salad is a MUST MAKE. So delicious!

I’m so proud of all of you, for the progress you’ve made, but also your drive to stick to this challenge week after week after week — even if you fail some weeks! There’s really no other secret to health and fitness than that kind of tenacity and consistency.
