Takeout Thai Basil Chicken (Pad Kra Pao)

This Takeout Thai Basil Chicken is a fast and easy recipe that not only tastes delicious but tastes authentically Thai. It's the combination of lean mince, crispy vegetables, cashews and flavourful Thai basil, in a sweet and spicy sauce. My recipe also includes fried eggs which have a crispy golden edge and a runny yolk in the centre. Enjoy my Pad Kra Pao!
