Chilli Chicken With Basil Coconut Cream

16 ingredients
4 servings
Here is a quick and easy Thai dish that is very good without to much preparation time. I usually make this as one of the dishes I make when I do a Thai night, of course with the ingredients cut way back, as I make this with two or three other dishes to accompany it. I think I have gotten close to what would be the right amount for 4 people as one main dish.
