Wow. Really good. I used all the correct ingredients, but I ended up marinating the chicken in the sauce for over a day. Then as I was cooking the chicken, I added the first garlic portion to it. It came out really good. Next time I think I will do the sauteeing of the garlic, etc., and then make the sauce and marinate the whole thing together. Thanks for posting a great recipe.

very good & easy. Next time I will simmer the chicken for 15 minutes instead of 30. Our chicken was a little tough, but the flavor was great. Thank you for posting.

It's so good and garlicy! Make sure you have good ventilation when cooking this dish. Can't go wrong with it. Adjustment made: Marinatedd the chicken in the liquid mixture (soy sauce, wine, sugar) 1/2 hour before stir frying process. I suggest that you reduced sugar and soya sauce when cooking, as you might find it too sweet/salty vice versa. You can always taste the dish and add more sugar/soya sauce later. I used rice wine and moscato wine because I didn't have anough. I didn't use basil at all. Result... so tasty I have to eat it right away!

A Ten Star recipe! Outstanding flavor, spicyness and tenderness-can't say enough good things about this entree. Only change I would make next time is to double or triple the sauce. Don't know what oriental basil is so I used fresh chopped ordinary basil. Probably not anything alike but who cares? It was a wonderful meal!!

This is so good. I couldn't find Thai basil so I omitted it, but we loved it anyway. I will make again and we want to add the basil. I love the spice in this. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us.

Entire family loved it. Used a mix of white wine and gin instead of rice wine and had to use regular basil. All flavors mixed great...

I eat chicken just about every night. and I would have to say that this is easily my favourite recipe. The flavors are all well balanced and the final product tastes exquisite. Definitely make sure that you use fresh ingredients! Also, this recipe freezes and reheats easily for OAMC.

DH and I made this recipe for dinner tonight and really enjoyed it. I halved the recipe to accommodate the two of us. I was very excited that the dish calls for so much Thai basil as we planted a bunch of it in our garden and thus far, hadn't used it. This has great flavor. Next time, like Sugarpea suggested, we will double or triple the sauce (it is really yummy). Our sauce reduced very quickly and didnt need the whole 30 minutes to thicken, so I would keep my eye on it more closely next time. DH also thought we would keep the amount of serrano the same as you have posted, even when halving the recipe (we like things spicy). He also suggested peanuts might taste nice in this dish. We'll have to try that out. Other than halving the recipe, we followed all ingredients and steps as posted and we will definitely make this again, experimenting with the aforementioned suggestions. Thanks for this keeper!
