Every time I sit down to write one of these posts, the first thing that wants to come out of my mouth (fingers) is “ugh life is a lot right now”.
It’s like the thought can’t wait to escape my mind and this blog is the only outlet I have.
Now that boring shit is out of the way let’s move on to food.

Sweet Spicy Thai Chili Chicken
(start making 20 minutes before you want Sweet Spicy Thai Chili Chicken)
Slice your chicken against the grain and on the diagonal (30 degrees). You want these in thin, bite-sized pieces.
In a small bowl mix together your fresh Thai chilis, chili sauce, oyster sauce, and fish sauce.
In a large wok or non-stick skillet, heat your veggie oil over high heat. Add the sliced onions and stir for about 2 minutes until they start to get soft. Add your chicken and pre-mixed sauce to the pan. Let this cook over high heat until chicken is done, about 5 minutes. Stir often to make sure the pieces cook evenly.
Serve with rice.
