Introduction: Thai Basil Chiken
During the long periods at home I have been spending due to lock in place orders, I have started to cook more. One of my goals was to learn all of my mother's dishes that she cooks for family dinners that I love to eat. The recipe I will be sharing with you today is my mother's Thai Basil Chicken recipe that she cooks from time to time. It is a very nurshing meal and tasty. My family loves spicy foods so this is right for us and you too if you are also a fan of spicier foods. This recipe is not the easiest to make because it demands constant attention but it is quite rewarding after you're done.
