Did some changes to suit our tastes - used 1K of chicken breasts breasts (needed left overs for the DH on night shift) but though we like basil I only used 1/2 cup freshly plucked from the plant (sweet basil) but left all other ingredients the same and used brown sugar (no palm). We enjoyed this with with stir fry vegetables and steamed rice. Thank you Jan, made as part of Aussie/Kiwi Swap #26 March 2009.
