Thai Basil with Chicken ผัดกระเพราไก่ - Episode 63


Thai Basil with Chicken, or Pad Krapow, is in my Top 5 all time favorite Thai dishes. This dish can be found on almost every street corner in Thailand, with food vendors happy and eager to serve up this classic Thai cuisine. Not only is it easy to make, but it is simply delicious. Thai Basil with Chicken is less common than Thai Basil with Pork, which really is the exact same recipe, just with pork instead of chicken. Both are great and I eat them whenever I get the chance. I like mine a little on the spicy side, so you might want to use a mild pepper or cut the pepper amount down if you don't do spicy very well.
