Re:Thai-Style Stir-Fried Chicken and Basil

I agree with other reviewers that you need to punch up the recipe a little. Made as is, I would give it 2-1/2 stars. However, if you increase all the ingredients except for the meat by about 25%, then the dish has great flavor and heat. I used ground turkey tonight b/c I had no chicken breasts and it was delicious (and of course cheaper then buying boneless breasts). I used 2 fresh Serrano peppers and one habanero, minced, and sauteed them along with the garlic and shallots and a few Tbls of chopped cilantro. At the end I added Thai basil leaves (grow it in your garden during the summer).Finally, while the basmati rice was cooking I sauteed several generous handfuls of chopped shitakes, a small sliced shallot, a little chopped cilantro, and a pinch of salt in a bit of oil. I added this to the cooked rice alond with an additional 2 Tbls of chopped cilantro. The combo with the chicken was wonderful.
