Thai Basil Chicken

Oh my… oh my… I just got my CSA box and there’s a fragrant bag of fresh basil in it.  Tonight I think I’m going to make some Thai Basil Chicken.  It’s often served in restaurants with chicken that has been ground like hamburger meat… I do prefer boneless, skinless chicken breasts. This one has […]
