The 30-Day Bigger Leaner Stronger Transformation
Thai recipes can be so much more than pad thai and stir fry.
And although they have a reputation for being complicated, there are plenty of Thai recipes that are made with simple, easily available ingredients like chilis, peppers, fish sauce, and spices.
Those the types of recipes you’ll find here.
They’re perfect for people who want a bit more flavor, without spending hours in the kitchen, and they’re all easy to make and macro-friendly as well.
The Pork Laab is a simple, easy recipe to get your feet wet. Try the Stir-Fried Pork & Green Beans with Chili Paste for a quick, high-protein dinner. Ready to go all-out? Try the Thai Grilled Whole Chicken.
Instead of roasting a whole chicken, why not grill it? Once you butterfly it, the chicken can be skewered and cooked on grill racks. It’ll take about an hour and a half, similar to how long it would take in the oven.
But this recipe is perfect for summer when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen. Grill it for a backyard barbecue or outdoor feast, where the chicken will be the star even before everyone gets a taste.
