Arepa Thai de Pollo (Thai Chicken Arepa)

Arepa Thai de Pollo (Thai Chicken Arepa)

I threw this Thai Chicken dish together for lunch with some leftover chicken that was in my refrigerator. If you’re a regular reader, you’ve probably noticed my obsession with arepas. I am always looking for new ways to prepare them!

I love the combination of spicy chili sauce (shirasha), the fragrant basil, fresh vegetables, chicken and crunchy peanuts. I have made many delicious Thai dishes, but I never thought of adding these wonderful Thai flavors to an arepa…until now that is! These arepas are perfect for snacks, a light lunch, or breakfast.

Buen provecho!
