Spicy Thai Basil Chicken (Pad Krapow Gai)
Pad Krapow Gai is a traditional Thai dish served over long-grain white rice. Typically, oyster sauce and soy sauce are used in the sauce but I created a soy-free, gluten-free version based on a recipe our good friends brought back from their travels in Thailand. I like to use Holy Basil, Thai Basil, or this Purple Mountain Basil I grow in my garden (pictured here) in this recipe as it lends a better flavor compared to sweet basil (but use whatever you have on hand). For added spice, chop up some extra fresh Thai chili peppers for garnish!
