“This recipe is from "Main Course Classics" which has some fabulous recipes. I changed it only slightly and was very happy with the results. There are alot of Thai style chicken basil recipes on here but I didn't see this particular one when searching, it is extremely simple and very good. It can be presented very nicely with fresh basil leaves and a few fresh diced red peppers but I could just eat it straight out of the wok with a spatula. I hope you enjoy this.”
