Thai Basil Chicken (Gai Pad Krapow)
When I was working in Beverly Hills, there is this Thai restaurant that my colleagues and I would always go to.
Also known as Gai Pad Krapow, this Thai basil chicken was delicious, with a fine balance of fiery hot and savory. I just loved that dish.
My Thai Basil Chicken Recipe (Gai Pad Krapow)
Now that I left the company, I often miss that spicy basil chicken rice plate for my lunch. Living in Orange County, with no decent Thai restaurants within a 30 miles radius.
I decided to seek out a spicy basil chicken recipe for myself and learn how to make it. And so I did, and I learned well.
There are many gai pad krapow recipes scattered on the internet but I attempted and adapted the basil chicken recipe at Temple of Thai.
The beautiful picture pretty much sealed the deal. This Thai basil chicken did not disappoint; it works and delivers the authentic flavors that I had been longing for.
Thai Basil Chicken for the Family Win
I love making this recipe at home because Mr. Rasa Malaysia really enjoys the dish. My son also loves this basil chicken recipe because it’s made with ground chicken, making it very easy for him to chew and eat.
For the basil leaves, if you can find royal basil leaves in your farmers market, use them. Otherwise, use Asian basil leaves with purple stems.
All in all though, this Thai basil leaf chicken recipe is very easy to make and will definitely be my keeper!
