I LOVE the Crispy Rice at Silk Thai, also! It was wonderful to find this recipe and attempt to replicate the experience. The recipe is very close. I added some Thai chilies, because we like spicy food, also, made the mistake of not allowing the rice/chicken breast mixture to cool before adding the remaining ingredients. Overall the flavor was wonderful, the rice was no longer crispy (my mistake). I will be making this again, with the change I mentioned previously. Great job on duplicating the recipe! Thank you.
