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 chili's finely sliced.
