    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    An abundance of whole basil leaves joins chicken and fiery red chiles for a quick, delicious, and decidedly spicy stir-fry. Holy basil is the most authentic choice, but any variety will do. (From Food and Wine.)

      This is really good, the chicken comes out perfectly; and the amounts of onion, garlic and basil are perfect in proportion to the chicken. My only complaint is that the flavor profile needs some acid to really bring it into balance. A good squeeze of lime juice really brings this up to the five star level. Made for ZWT9.
