Thai Chilli Chicken and Basil

    Really good and easy recipe. I had about 400g chicken and added bok Choy at the end. It was delicious.

    Great flavor ! Needed a little more sweetness, maybe next time increase the sweet soy and sweet chilli💕

    First time making this I was shocked that I could make a Thai curry that tastes just like I get from the restaurants!! It's amazing!!

    Smooth flavour, I used 300 ml of coconut milk and was still plenty of liquid. can add more chilli for added fire and I also added beans and carrots in last few minutes to sneak extra veg in for family. will try with thigh fillets as breast chunks/slices were starting to dry. All in all, delightful and popular with all. Thanks

    Very tasty meal, added snow peas two mins before dish finished. Also added garlic, ginger & kaffir lime leaves. A real favourite.

    Quick easy meal - I used noodles and added vegies and extra basil, chilli and included garlic and ginger. Yum!

    Great recipe, I make this all the time. I always add some vegetables in with the chicken. Highly recommended. 😀

    I used Thai basil and the flavours were amazing. I would probably purée the onion more (fussy husband). Great recipe!

    Delicious! Loved it. This also went down with my incredibly fussy kids, which shocked me! I was thrilled. Next time I might try using chicken thigh.
