Thai Basil Chicken

Thai Basil Chicken

This simple Thai dish known as Pad Grapow is insanely quick and inexpensive to make. It's light, yet flavorful with lots of heat and tons of basil.

I recently got my hands on Chrissy Teigen's new cookbook, Cravings. What a beautiful book, love the photography and food styling, with lots of interesting recipes. Although not exactly a low calorie book, I found some dishes in the book that can easily be made light. This simple chicken dish is a great example, I slightly modified it to make it lighter, and plan on adding some vegetables to the mix to make the portion a little more substantial the next time I make it.
