I love Thai basil, it has an amazing flavour. This dish comes with a fragrant Thai style sauce with roasted cashews - perfect on a bed of Jasmine rice and steamed veggies. I use thigh fillets as I think they are better suited for stir-frying. If you like a little heat, add 1-2 small red chilis finely sliced.

Using Thai basil in this chicken stir-fry adds amazing aroma and flavor to the dish. Thai basil has a savory, anise-like flavor which is completely different from the Italian basil (used in pesto). This stir-fry is sweet and salty with savory chicken and crunchy cashews. Serve with rice and enjoy! If you want to add some spice, top with a little bit of garlic chili sauce.
