F.A.Q.


home > recipes > meat > basil chicken
>I have fresh basil growing in my garden, and I am looking for recipes that I can use it in. (Especially ones that will focus on its flavor. Vegi. or chicken recipes are prefered.) Glad to know that someone has fresh basil from their garden! Here's a wonderful way to have it with chicken. Stew chicken pieces for 20-30 min. with following ingredients, and add a handful of basil leaves (leave the soft stems in) for the last 15 min. Save some leaves for the last minute for color. - 1 lb chicken (if you don't chop it up, for example, leaving drum sticks as they are, slice a few deap openings) - water to cover 2/3 of the chicken in your pot/wok - a few slices of ginger (dried, fresh) - 1-2 Tbsp dark sesami oil (light sesami oil won't have the flavor) - 6-8 Tbsp soy sauce - 2-3 Tbsp sugar (ice cube sugar, brown, red, white...... anything) - 1-2 Tbsp cooking wine Turn the chicken a few times in the stewing process. After chicken is done, if too much sauce remain, thicken by turning up the heat. The sauce is GRRRRREAT on rice. P.S. If you use a wok, stir fry ginger in sesami oil first, add chicken, stir fry, then, add water and the remaining ingredients. Good luck! from: Genoa, Italy

>I have fresh
basil growing in my garden, and I am looking for recipes that I can use it in. (Especially ones that will focus on its flavor. Vegi. or chicken recipes are prefered.)

Glad to know that someone has fresh
basil from their garden! Here's a wonderful way to have it with chicken.

Stew chicken pieces for 20-30 min. with following ingredients, and add a handful of basil leaves (leave the soft stems in) for the last 15 min. Save some leaves for the last minute for color.

- 1 lb
chicken (if you don't chop it up, for example, leaving drum sticks as they are, slice a few deap openings)
- water to cover 2/3 of the
chicken in your pot/wok
- a few slices of ginger (dried, fresh)
- 1-2 Tbsp dark sesami oil (
light sesami oil won't have the flavor)
- 6-8 Tbsp
soy
sauce
- 2-3 Tbsp
sugar (ice cube sugar, brown, red, white...... anything)
- 1-2 Tbsp
cooking wine

Turn the
chicken a few times in the stewing process.

After
chicken is done, if too much sauce remain, thicken by turning up the heat. The sauce is GRRRRREAT on rice.

P.S. If you use a
wok, stir fry ginger in sesami oil first, add chicken, stir fry, then, add water and the remaining ingredients.

Good luck!
