    cookiedog's Note:

    Posting the for the Zaar World Tour III. From Foster Farms, the original recipe calls for 1 package boneless, skinless breast tenders. Zaar does not recognize this so I entered 2 lbs. After reading Lori's helpful review, I listed the salt as optional.

      GREAT dish. We've been eating lots of chicken (who hasn't?) so I switched the protein from chicken to sea scallops. Other than switching the scallops for the chicken, I made this as written. Very,very,good. This has great flavors and it was a good use of the Thai basil that wants to take over my herb garden. Next time, maybe I'll try it with shrimp.

      This was an interesting recipe. The basil tasted great, but I felt that a lot of the flavor was provided by the oyster sauce, and I think I was hoping for a more complex flavor. Also, I used 1 lb of chicken, but wished I had more sauce. All in all, it was quite tasty, but I'm not sure I'll be making it in this form again--perhaps I'll add a bit more spice (red pepper), some fresh ginger, and half a cup more shitake mushrooms next time. Thanks for the recipe, it has provided me with a good jumping off point for future thai recipes!

      Loved this recipe. Made a couple of changes - used fresh Thai bird's eye chilis instead of hot pepper flakes and added a few asparagus stalks cut into one inch pieces. I also omitted the salt.
