Thai flavors of coconut and basil come together in this fresh and spicy chicken and cabbage stir-fry. If your family prefers a milder meal, forgo the jalapeño. Serve with: Rice noodles and mango slices.

"Our family really loved this, and I have made it twice more since then! I agree that it's not really a stir fry OR a curry, but that's just semantics. It's a great dish, regardless of what you call it. Fabulous flavor and it comes...

I made this tonight and absolutely loved it. I used Thai basil instead of regular basil and served over brown rice. The dish was very easy to make once everthing was prepped, but it took me a really long time to chop and slice. I also never used coconut milk before and I was happy to find that the light coconut milk was very flavorful.


Made this last night - the only change I made was to throw in some red pepper for color at the same time you throw in the white part of the green onion. I also mixed in Tofu Shiritaki noodles, since I didn't have any rice noodles to cook.
This was the first time I've made a Thai dish and it was a big hit! REALLY great flavor. Remember to shake the can of coconut milk - I'd never used that as an ingredient before and didn't realize until after I'd opened the can that I needed to shake it up !

This recipe also came together as quickly as promised (I did use pre-sliced shiritake).
