    Times are tough AF. I ain't got chicken broth, oyster sauce, fish sauce, basil, a wok, damn. I got a egg tho.

    I think the local Asian grocery (mom-and-pop, Mom is Thai) has holy basil. Seeds are easy to find on line but then you have to grow the plants to get any…

    I'm so happy to see that even after a few years you're still happily cooking and making awesome videos Chef John :) You're the man!

    I just bought some spicy thai basil at the store today as I came across it by accident really. And tonight this recipe is suggested to me on Youtube. Talk about perfect timing, this was one of the best tasting dishes I've eaten in a while!

    Nope!! No shallots!!!

    And we don't chop the basil because it will give funny smell. Just throw a bunch in at the end, people can smell it from across the town.

    And you've got to be brave with the chili. This is quite a spicy dish. We use bird-eye chili peppers, roughly chopped. It's tiny but painfully hot. Signature!!

    Everything else here is pretty much accurate, except we stir fry the garlic and the chili first, then chicken, then the sauce mixture, then the basil at the end. The way you do here, the garlic and the chili won't give as much fragrant and the chicken will be a little dry.

    And you're right, we normally have this dish with fried egg on top. It's the most popular lunch menu, like your cheese burger.

    Grow thai basil. It's so easy in containers. I get my seeds at Baker Creek or Migardener every year.
