  1. Was the Thai chicken spicy!! It looks and sounds great!!!
    BTW It's Cheryl

  2. Hi Cheryl,

    The Thai chicken was not spicy however you could add additional cayenne pepper or none at all if you prefer and I am sure if I had used the fresh chili pepper it may have been spicier but I try to cook all recipes so that Lil H will eat them as well.

  3. Thanks.. That is what I was curious about. I won't eat spicy and neither will L. I am gonna try this one. I will let you know how it comes out!
