Thai Ground Chicken Basil
I just joined this site and I was very excited to try this recipe tonight as my first recipe here. But I must confess that I was a bit under-wowed, sorry. :( It seems a very good attempt, but I have in memory a ground chicken Thai basil that I had a year or so ago that was decidely more *something* than this. I dunno what is missing, though. :( (I hope it isn't just MSG :p ) For one thing, this recipe left my rice/plate/palate a whole lot more dry, so maybe I needed to increase all of the sauce ingredients? I did add a handful of sliced onion and sliced red bell pepper to this, and I didn't want to buy a whole package of Thai chilies that I found so went with one Jalapeno and about 1/2 tsp. of Sambal Olek. The spiceiness worked out okay but the overall flavor was still a little blah and the dish seemed dry overall. I need to revisit the restaurant where I first encountered this dish as *amazing* and try to figure out how it was pumped up. This was a good effort, though, so I thank you for it! :)
