Thai Basil Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by dianegrapegrower

Adapted (liberally) from Simply THAI Cooking, this is a favorite in our house, as testified by the badly stained page in my cookbook. Can also sub pork for the chicken. Change vege to suit your taste - green beans are nice instead of bok choy. Prep all ingredients, including the sauces, before starting to cook.

First off I want to say that I normally don't write review, even though I should, since I am always using them to help me out. Anywhooo, this meal was FANTASTIC!!!!!! B/c I read a lot of the reviews I made some changes. First off, b/c i read a complaint of saltiness, I decided to go with Braggs ( natural soy sauce) and I did not use fish sauce ( did not have it) I just simply used 3tbls of braggs and 1 tbls of lime juice (read this is a great substitute for fish sauce). I also used the red curry paste and red pepper flakes ( read from one of the earlier reviews). I added a lot of vegs, ( broccoli, green & red pepper, onions, zucchini & mushrooms). My fam LUVD it. We will def be having this again and again. I cant say enough about how good it was.
