I adapted this recipe from a cooking class I took while I stayed in Bangkok. You can adjust the veggies and spiciness to your personal preference and you can substitute firm tofu for chicken. Serve over jasmine rice. Adjust the amount of chili garlic paste for spiciness.

Spicy Thai Basil Chicken (Pad Krapow Gai)

My version of this classic Thai dish has spectacular taste even with regular basil instead of Thai or holy basil. The sauce actually acts like a glaze as the chicken mixture cooks over high heat. The recipe works best if you chop or grind your own chicken and have all ingredients prepped before you start cooking.

Thai Spicy Basil Chicken Fried Rice

This is a staple of Thai cooking. Adjust the spices to your own tastes for a really great use for leftover rice!! I get the basil from a local Asian market. It has a different flavor than that of regular basil and makes all the difference in this recipe. It is fast and fairly easy to make, but requires constant stirring.
