I’m a total sucker for take-out. Whether it’s Chinese, Thai and Indian food are my favorite! We don’t eat out very often, so I love to concoct “better than takeout” meals from home. Some of my favorites include:

Restaurant Style Kung Pao Chicken

Thai Basil Chicken

Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken

P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps

What’s not to love about a noodle stir-fry tossed in Kung Pao sauce? This recipe is really easy, and I love all of the fresh colorful veggies in it! You could even mix it up and add snap peas, water chestnuts or carrots too.  An amazing, restaurant quality dish made from home in less than 30 minutes!
