Help me recreate...

The best part about this busy work time is the free lunches we provide on med school applicant interview days. We have a fantastic catering company that we use for every meal.

My favorite meal is the Sweet Basil Chicken with brown rice.
It. is. AMAZING.


Sometimes there is enough left over for me to take home for dinner.

This is where you all come in.
Anyone ever made anything like this before?
I would kill for a similar recipe.

Here is the description from their website:

  3. Hard to know without tasting the dish, but what about this recipe? http://notecook.com/main-course/chicken/sweet-basil-chicken/
    You could adjust the heat and the sweetness depending on how much jalepeno and honey you use. Good luck!

  5. I don't know how to re-create it, but I'd definitely love to see what you come up with. It looks delicious and it sounds like so much fun to have all of those great lunches. So jealous of your job!

  6. Sweet chili sauce - the BEST one I've found is the Mae Ploy sauce.

    I used to work in a hotel, which is where I learned about this. The executive chef said that most places that use a sweet chile sauce use this one. SO, I'm thinking maybe a marinade of this spiked with basil?

    (it's SO GOOD on tempura shrimp too, fyi)

  8. This looks so good! I actually make something similar to this: you can buy sweet chili sauce at the grocery store with the stir frys and such, and then chop up fresh basil and mix it together. Maybe that will work?
