  What do you need to do :

  • Cook for about 1 min until fragrant. Then, pour in the earlier prepared sauce. 

  • Continue to cook for 1-2 more mins until the sauce begins to glaze.   

  • Stir in the Thai basil leaves (or regular basil) and cook until the chicken is completely cooked through, the basil is wilted, and the liquid has mostly reduced. 

  • Serve with rice.
