Footnotes

  • You can substitute pork tenderloin or boneless loin chops for the chicken. If using tenderloin, cut in half lengthwise. Cut tenderloin halves or chops crosswise into 1/4-inch (0.5 cm) thick strips. In step 3, cook until just a hint of pink remains in pork.

This is SOO good. I think it's one of those recipes you can't possibly ruin. I didn't have cream, so I substituted some 1% milk, mixed with coconut water and a dollop of greek yogurt. I also substituted dry ginger and dry basil for the fresh. I'm sure it's better with the fresh ingredients, but it worked! My husband and I both agree that it needs to be on heavy rotation in our house.
