This recipe is from "Main Course Classics" which has some fabulous recipes. I changed it only slightly and was very happy with the results. There are alot of Thai style chicken basil recipes on here but I didn't see this particular one when searching, it is extremely simple and very good. It can be presented very nicely with fresh basil leaves and a few fresh diced red peppers but I could just eat it straight out of the wok with a spatula. I hope you enjoy this.

LOVED this! Restaurant quality, and simple to prepare. Used low sodium soy sauce, and only about 2 tablespoons, and one tablespoon of fish sauce to cut back on the sodium. Also, added a small ladle of chicken stock when reducing the sauce, as it was starting to burn. Made this with Thai Lemongrass soup, and it was perfect. Definitely a keeper!
