Easy dinner/ lunches are a bliss as mostly we all have hectic lifestyles,so many things on the plate and so less time.

So this time easy food comes to everyone's rescue. This recipe will definitely make you happy and it goes very well with sticky rice or any fried rice of your choice.

I made this will Egg Fried Rice, that's what I like to have but you can enjoy it as it is or as a side.

Key Ingredients in Thai Basil Chicken:
  • Chicken Breast / Thigh Meat - Choice is your's.Whatever you like to use it. 
  • 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 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.
  • Sauce Mix(Hoisin Sauce,Soy Sauce,Fish Sauce,Brown Sugar) - Make a mix of these ingredients, works so good.
