I'm sorry, but neither my hubs or I liked this at all. Not only did this taste NOTHING like our local Thai restaurant's chicken basil dish, it was SUPER bland to boot. Thai basil / ginger might have perked this up a bit, but to be quite honest, this dish simply lacks oomph and authenticity. For starters, I've never had Thai basil chicken with anything other than ground chicken. Secondly, the sauce in traditional basil chicken is SPICY! This sauce was tangy (from the addition of rice wine vinegar) and very mild. Lastly, restaurant-quality basil chicken is made with FRESH veggies (chiles, bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, etc.) and WHOLE basil leaves which wilt as they cook (like spinach) and infuse the sauce with amazing flavor. Maybe this will float your boat, but it did absolutely nothing for us. Thanks anyways, Gabrielle.
