Thai Chicken Tacos

Hello friends!

Man it’s been a long time since I shared a recipe here on my bloggy. Well since I am currently a stay at home mommy, I have a lot more time to prep and cook meals 🙂 I’ve been making some bang-o-rang meals this week and last night was ahhhhhhhhmazing.  I made some Thai chicken tacos, and I wanted to share the recipe with you all.
