"Adapted (liberally) from Simply THAI Cooking, this is a favorite in our house, as testified by the badly stained page in my cookbook. Change veggie to suit your taste - green beans are nice instead of bok choy. Prep all ingredients, including the sauces, before starting to cook. We make this often, so I keep prepped sauces in glass jars in the fridge."

One of my favorite dishes to make, this Thai chicken is delicious! I love that it uses fresh basil. Gives it so much flavor along with the sauces of course. I made jasmine rice to have it with and also a Thai green salad. A great meal!
