Nam phrik ta deang (chilli relish)

Nam phrik (Thai: นํ้าพริก, pronounced [nám pʰrík]) is a spicy chili sauce/relish in Thai cuisine. For some households Nam phrik must be in almost every meal. Most of the time, nam phrik is eaten with a boiled vegetables selection, fried fish, plus a plate of rice. A Nam phrik dish is a low fat option and with the vegetables on the side this dish can be considered a healthy dish.

Let’s get started.

Chicken with Diane sauce

Chicken with Diane sauce. This recipe, cooked with love, delivers perfectly tender chicken breasts with a delicious sauce that you will remember for weeks.

To me, a highlight of the dish is that it isn’t too heavy. I find it a lovely dish for spring, with some winter flavours but without the accompanying hearty vegetables.

Ingredients

2 free range chicken breasts, skin on
Salt & Pepper
15 g butter
1 tbsp olive oil
1 shallots
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/4 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup cream
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Chopped parsley
