Fancy Thai Food? Here’s a simple dish that you can try at home!
Thai Basil Chicken aka Pad Krapow

Long gone and I am finally back with a post on home cooking.
Here’s what I am about to share today!

– Thai Basil Minced Chicken –

I love basil a lot, which explains why I love this dish too! As I was searching for this recipe on Youtube, I stumbled upon this recipe by Thai Cookbook TVย which is pretty easy.

Besides, this dish is so much simple than I thought and I could just cook it like every week. I’ve actually tried a few different recipes which I found on Youtube but I think I still prefer this one by Thai Cookbook TV (thumbs up)!

Although there are some slight adjustments that I made but basically just use all the ingredients mentioned and you’re 99.9% close in getting that authentic taste of Pad Krapow.

Simple, cheap and delicious!
