Craving some Thai food at home? Something that doesn’t require too much time and effort to prepare and cook? Well, give this version of Thai Basil chicken a go. A savoury, spicy (optional or adjustable), chicken dish with a twist of citus that blends well with the aromatic Thai basil leaves. There is also plenty of gravy to go with fluffy and fragrant steamed Thai Jasmine rice.
For this dish, I recommend using Thai Jasmine rice as its slightly sticky yet light and fluffy. The Thai lime juice is a must have for this dish as it definitely brings the flavours up a notch and makes it more authentic, as with the fish sauce.
Actually, I happen to be pruning the herb garden, and my basil plants were overgrown, so I decided to cook this dish for the family and they loved it. I don’t remember where the original recipe came from but this is my twist and I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
In my dish, I added more Thai basil leaves with some sweet basil leaves, since I had too much for keeps. I think it was a nice blend but the Thai basil leaves is a must in this recipe.
I do hope you will try this and write me a review or comment. Feel free to adjust recipes to your family’s preferences and post me a picture if you have tried it. Share comments so I can learn too. Looking forward.
As always, Happy Thermomixing!
