Thai Spicy Basil Chicken Fried Rice
This recipe is easily one of my very favorite things to cook! All my friends LOVE and RAVE about it! I cook this in my giant, propane, outdoor wok that I bought from Bass Pro on it is quite a show for friends! I prep all the veggies in advance so when I'm ready, I just throw everything in (in specific order of course!) I've made the following changes to an already outstanding recipe: I add more sauce (9 tablespoons oyster sauce, 6 tablespoons fish sauce and 3 teaspoon white sugar). I add 2 chunks of finely chopped ginger with the garlic. I also add sliced carrots, mushrooms and diced scallions. I scramble 6 eggs in advance and add them at the end. I occasionally substitute scallops or tofu for chicken. WOW this is great!! Everyone I've made this for wants the recipe!! (I can't figure out how to give this 10 stars, so I'll have to give it only 5!)
