directions

  • In oil over medium-high heat, saute onion, basil, garlic, green onions, chilies, and grated ginger in oil until onions are soft.
  • Add ground chicken and sauté until browned.
  • Mix fish sauce and brown sugar together; add into chicken/basil mixture and stir to coat.
  • Saute for another 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Serve with rice.
  • Note: please use Thai basil if at all possible, which holds up better under heat and is much more aromatic than common Italian/French basil.

    Loved this! We added the lime juice as one reviewer suggested and chopped up some zucchini chunks that went in with the chicken. I used a milder pepper until the meat was done enough to pull out some for my daughter then went crazy will the chili sauce. Served over noodles. Compliments from the kids - that rarely happens! Will be a regular addition to the rotation. Also, used turkey instead of chicken as that was handy.

    Super Awesome. I modified by adding a red pepper and a stalk of broccoli (stem too) and a red onion as I didn't have white. Doubled the sugar / fish sauce - as I had so many veggies. I put 1/2 of the thai basil into the mix (sautéed) and put 1/2 on top after plating. Served over rice. This was really really good - exactly what I was looking for.

    Excellent recipe, very forgiving. I added a ton of other vegetables to make it a whole meal. I will make this again.

    My husband and I both loved this recipe! It was so simple to make and very flavorful. I used Italian basil as that was all I had and it was fresh out of the garden and I used 1 jalapeno, no seeds, as I couldnt find the Thai Chili peppers. I did double the amount of basil and would not seed the jalapeno next time as we would have liked a bit more heat. Thanks Julesong!
