If you are like me and LOVE Thai food, then you feel my pain on Sundays. It’s like Chick-Fil-A, the Thai places are closed on Sunday! Argh! That seems to be the one day that I really crave Thai food. My brain likes to play tricks on me like that. Go figure.

Well, I decided to recreate one of my favorite dishes, Pad Ka Prow (Basil Chicken). I made a homemade sauce and used ground chicken breast.  This is delicious and doesn’t take a lot of effort or time in the kitchen. There are a few ingredients that aren’t staples in the typical American home, so it can be somewhat costly the very first time you make it.  However, it is well worth it because you will want to make it again!
