Spicy Thai Chicken With Basil

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by KPD123

DH and I love spicy foods. I have made this dish many, many times. It came from my Asian Hot & Spicy Cookbook. This is so simple to make, it requires zero effort...which I'm all about! Great served with rice and my Chili Lime Chickpeas. Enjoy!

Tasty, light and simple! I made as stated, except used ~1Tbsp red pepper flake instead of fresh Serrano, since I did not have one. Plenty of bite. I doubled the sauce (water, soy sauce & brown sugar) as suggested, but think I'll even triple it next time since I served over cooked soba noodles. Thanks for sharing!!
