I am supposed to go out to dinner with friends tonight for Thai food. I only ALWAYS get one thing and one thing only: Chicken Pad Pik (or Prik) King.
It's green beans and chicken in a spicy sauce. I've tried looking up the recipe for the sauce and the best I can find is this (ps-none of it is fried)
6 ounces meat of choice (beef, chicken, pork, shrimp or duck), tofu or vegetables
2 teaspoons oil
1 teaspoon Prik King curry
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon fish sauce
Kaffir lime leaves
1 cup green beans
1/2 cup water
Do you think the sugar will set off a craving? I should be starting Phase 2 as of yesterday but I did have one beer so I want to go back to phase 1 for another day (although I haven't had any cravings).
Will eating this set me back? I won't eat the rice (and will ask that they don't even bring it out as I love it).
If you think it will, do you have suggestions on what I should
