      Oh. My. Goodness. This is so wonderful! Made for a wonderful Friday night dinner with DH! I used siracha (sp) hot chili sauce, not sure how much (just to taste) and used dried basil and fresh cilantro and used light coconut milk! I will say if you use the dried herbs, after you add the milk, make sure to simmer it for about ten minutes to let the flavor develop because it changes a lot! At first the coconut was very overwhelming and after simmering everything just blended perfectly and the flavors really shimmered in and out in a perfect blend! Served with sticky rice and can't wait to make again! :) Made for PRMR Tag January 2010!

      This was fantastic, much to my delight, because I was a little bit unsure. I used chicken breast sliced for stir-fry, I ended up getting some wonderful Thai basil from a local Thai market, and I had chilies from a plant my son just gave me that he bought at a Thai restaurant. I did miscalculate on the chilies, and ended up with about only 1 heaping tablespoon finely chopped but it was more than spicy - it did clear my sinuses! I had never used fish sauce before (and hated the smell of it), but it worked in just fine. There was indeed a lot of sauce, so make a lot of rice (I used basmati). I can't say enough how delicious this was, and I will be making this again. Even though I have had Thai Basil Chicken in restaurants many times before, the coconut milk really added a unique aspect that I will want again. Thanks for posting this.
