    Diced Chicken with Basil

    Source of Recipe / Recipe #10880 by KimOng

    Recipe Introduction

    This is a simple Thai dish to be served with steamed white rice. In Thai, it is called Larb Kai Bai Horapa. For better flavour, use fresh Thai basil (either horapa or manglak) instead of the regular sweet basil, although the latter can be substituted. Try it, it tastes great and is very simple and quick to prepare.
