Spicy Thai Shrimp & Chicken

IMG_0988-001
Lately dinner has become a bit of a joke at my house with the conversation going something like this Him-hmm something smells good, what are you cooking? Me- I have no idea just let me know how you like it.  With such a busy schedule and making an effort to cook at least four days a week, opening the fridge, and pulling out ingredients on the fly is how it gets done in a crunch.

The end result is usually something with an explosion of flavor that has me dancing at the table.
This dish has quite a few ingredients which give it such an incredibly rich flavor it is most certainly a palate pleaser.
