Thai Lime and Lemongrass Chicken

Thai Lime and Lemongrass Chicken

Serves 4

This stir fry is quick, easy, healthy and a whole wok full of yum! We love the fresh flavours in this dish, from the lime, the lemongrass and all those fresh herbs. This dish is delicious with rice or noodles, but for a healthy option, we love to eat this wrapped up in crisp lettuce leaves. It’s delish!

And, in a side note, how are you liking my Minnie Mouse chopsticks?!
