  • I have used Chicken Breast meat this time but if you have Thigh Meat go ahead and use it. You can cut the chicken into small strips or use ground /minced Chicken to make this dish.

  • Thai Red Chili - I have used the dried Thai Red Chili,as I could not get my hands on fresh Thai Red Chili.But taste would not change much.

  • Thai Holy Basil / Thai Basil - Its key ingredient here and adds so much flavor to this recipe. Do try this recipe and do not be skeptical to add Basil, its really very good.

  • Thai Basil Sauce(Hoisin Sauce,Soy Sauce,Fish Sauce,Brown Sugar) - Make a mix of these ingredients, works so good.

  • If you are able to get Holy Basil then use them in this recipe but if you cannot find them then you can use Thai basil leaves.

  • Instead of dried chili you can use fresh Thai chili. Use them as per individual spice tolerance.

  • Make sure you do not add the marinated chicken and let it sit on the wok but quickly stir fry it to cook.Letting the chicken sit on the wok will make the chicken lumpy and the dish will get messy as the cornstarch will harden.
