Thai Basil Chicken Recipe (pad Kra Pao Gai ผัดกระเพราไก่) - Thai Recipes

Alright everyone, I've been receiving some requests to post some Thai recipes, so this is my first attempt at filming and publishing a Thai street food recipe known as pad kra pao gai (ผัดกระเพราไก่), and I'm excited. When I first moved to Thailand, most of what I did was only eat, and discover all the amazing food there way. I lived in a small studio apartment without a kitchen, so I wasn't able to do much cooking or sample the many Thai recipes I had wanted to try out. But after getting married and moving into a house, we now have a kitchen, and while normally my wife and her mother do the cooking (which is outstanding by the way), I have had a chance to make some Thai street food recipes as well.

Now, the ingredients listed here for the Thai basil chicken recipe (pad kra pao gai ผัดกระเพราไก่) are what I used. But that being said, Thai food is very much a taste based cuisine, meaning that you really need to taste test your cooking. Don't just assume all these measurements are correct for your taste buds – and sometimes the seasonings we use can differ a bit. So use these ingredients and cooking directions as a guide instead of as exact measurements.

Hope you enjoyed this Thai basil chicken recipe. I will be publishing a few more like this video in this series.

  1. I made this for the first time yesterday, and it was that good I made it
    again tonight. Best thing I’ve cooked in a long time, so quick and easy.
    Looking forward to trying more of your recipes!

    1. +Paul McAllister Great to hear that Paul, thanks for sharing!

    2. +Mark Wiens why you are imitating byron talbott ? Lol

  2. I’m not quite sure but i think thai basil and holy basil aint the same. Can
    someone help me out?

    1. +mastamuenz You’re right, they are quite different. Thai basil is the same
      as Thai sweet basil (and much more common to find outside of Thailand), and
      it’s more sweet, almost like licorice in flavor. Holy basil has a much more
      peppery flavor. Hope you can find it!

    2. +Mark Wiens Thanks for your quick response. Love your recipes and the
      authentic ways of cooking. Keep it up!

    3. +Mark Wiens its hard to find holy basil in my area. what can i use to
      substitute?
