Thai Basil Chicken (Pad Krapow Gai)

Last night I saw some interesting recipes on internet and I wrote down some of it and hope I can cook it someday. It’s sunday and I’m off from workout so I need something healthy for my diet, something good for my muscles to grow more lol. Maybe dish with high protein and carb would be nice. I went to the supermarket near my flat and bought some fresh ingredients. Remember to use fresh ingredients for every dishes because nothing gives more flavor to your food than fresh ingredients.

Today I’m gonna cook PAD KRAPOW GAI, it sounds naugthy but it’s not a gay bar or something nasty, It’s a Thailand dish with cute pronounce you ever heard. If you love something with strong flavor I recommend you this recipe. Thailand food emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components and a spicy edge. It is known for its complex of at least three and up to four or five fundamental taste senses in each dish: sour, sweet, salty, bitter, and spicy. Here’s how I’m making pad krapow gai. Cook your rice first then assemble the ingredients.

2. For the chicken breast, sliced it into a small pieces and then mince it. Don’t forget the basil leaves (we only use the leave). Grab some leaves and roll it into one and then sliced it. Use as much as you like, but i prefer 2 handful because for me i love food with strong flavour.

3. Now to prepare the sauce add 3 table spoons of oyster sauce, 1 table-spoon of soy sauce and a pinch of sugar into a small bowl or you can use a plate.
