How To Serve
My favorite way to serve spicy Thai basil chicken is over coconut rice. However, because I am following a low carb diet I make Coconut Rice Cauliflower! It is so delicious and good that you will not miss the rice at all. I promise. Recipe: Coconut Cauliflower Rice (Keto Cauliflower Rice)
