This turned out great. It actually ended up being close to the Basil Chicken we eat at our local Thai restaurant. I did make a few changes. First, I used ground chicken, as the restaurant we go to uses ground, not boneless. I didn't have any chile peppers, but I did have a chile paste, so I used that in place. Also, didn't have any thai basil, so used regular. I was worried that it would ruin it. It didnt' ruin it, but can definitley tell a difference between thai basil and the regular basil you buy from the store. Oh, and I think that in order to achieve the truly authentic taste, fresh basil is a must, even if it's not thai basil. Served with Jasmine rice. It turned out spicier than I thought it would, using the chile paste, but I would still do it that way next time. I was worried it might be too spicy for my daughter, but she liked it! Mind you, I add cayenne pepper to almost everything I cook, so almost everything we eat has a little heat. THis was definitley more than what my daughter is used to. My husband and I love the spiciness. Oh man, was this good. Just writing this review has me wanting it again!
