Easy Spicy Thai Basil Chicken Recipe – I don’t cook Thai food in the home often, mostly because there are at the least twelve such restaurants within walking distance, but when I really do, there’s nothing I love significantly more than this spicy Thai basil chicken. Thai basil sold separately.
No, I didn’t use the real “Holy” basil, but even with regular basil, this simple recipe is spectacular. Aromatic basil is the perfect herb for pairing with the slightly sweet, sort of salty, and possibly spicy, chopped meat.
And yes, you truly do want to chop, or grind your own chicken. Even if the worst-case scenario I shared in the video isn’t something you’re grocery store would do, it’s still excellent to understand exactly what you’re eating, along with to be able to chop it as coarsely as you want.
If you determine to top with an egg, I would mention that they’re usually fried a lot more aggressively, with the edges getting brown and crispy. I often prefer something a tad bit more gently cooked, but in either case, or with none at all, I truly do hope you give this delicious basil chicken recipe a decide to try soon. Enjoy!
