This recipe was DELICIOUS! Sweet and spicy, very easy to make, and better than the basil chicken I ordered from a local Thai place a few weeks ago! This is definitely going into the regular rotation. Substitutions: 2 tablespoons chili oil (didn't have this so I used 1tsp Goya hot yellow pepper paste, few dashes of hot sauce, and olive oil) 2 cloves garlic (used 3-4) 3 hot chile peppers (couldn't find these, so I used one jalapeno pepper) 1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar (didn't have this so I used 1.5 tsp brown sugar) 1 teaspoon garlic salt (added 2 more cloves of garlic instead) 5 tablespoons oyster sauce (due to reviews about it being too salty, I only used 2.5 tbsp) 1 bunch fresh basil leaves (use a lot!) I cooked fresh green beans separately and served it over that instead of rice.
