    Bolistoli's Note:

    This is a great use of leftover rice. It's important to use Thai sweet basil to get the authentic Thai restaurant taste. And don't skip the fish sauce, it smells strong in the bottle, but it blends in nicely with the other ingredients when it's all put together. Also, make sure you use chilled rice, or you'll end up with mush.

      This taste exactly like the basil fried rice at our local Thai restaurant. I added shrimp instead of chicken it was excellent.

      This is a very attractive dish! I halved the recipe, and then halved the fish sauce again...increased the soy a bit to make up for it. I also used chopped up chicken thighs since I had those on hand. I used 1 whole egg instead of egg substitute. Really enjoyed the cilantro garnish in this. Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring PAC 2013
