Foolproof Recipe: Thai Basil Chicken August 12, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — phorealclub @ 8:48 pm

A friend e-mailed me this recipe last month for Gai Pad Krapow (Thai Basil Chicken), and I HAVE NOT been able to stop making it. It’s inexpensive, easy, and lends itself perfectly to protein/veggie subtitutions (read: you can use whatever’s in your CSA that week!) As a side, I like to make jasmine rice in coconut milk, with a dash of green curry paste if I have it on hand.

This is the ultimate “tastes complicated but it’s not” weeknight dinner, and the leftovers make for an amazing brown-bag lunch the next day.

Happy eating!

  1. Sounds delicious! I make a good crazy chicken rice noodle dish with Thai basil.
    I’m looking for more recipes that use that herb.
