The secret ingredient for this recipe is Thai basil which has a unique taste. Most Asian markets have it and well stocked supermarkets as well. You can substitute with regular basil, but it won't have the typical Thai flavor.

Meh. The first time I try a recipe I follow it verbatim. Maybe my new slow cooker cooks faster that it should but 4 hours into the cooking process most of the liquid had cooked away. At that point there was barely 2 servings I had to add some chicken broth AND some diced potatoes just so there would be a meal for two people. Way too much sodium! Read More

My wife and I both thought this was a great tasting recipe! I didn't change the ingredients list, but did cook it a bit differently due to our schedule. I cooked this on low for 3 hours and then turned off and came back hours later and turned it on high for 45 minutes with the added basil and didn't have any issues with dryness that was reported in another review. Next time I'll add one more Thai chili pepper and also add the red bell pepper when I add the basil so they are a bit firmer. Definitely will make again! Read More

I did make some changes I added one chopped onion and 3 cloves of minced garlic and one can of coconut milk and also one tbsp of red curry paste. I didn't find this recipe that great even though I added the extra ingredients. It was ok but if you like extra spice then it was a bit bland. I guess its not a thai curry so that's why the recipe didn't call for coconut milk or curry paste. I won't make it again. Read More
