TAIWANESE BASIL CHICKEN

Chu On This

It happens from time to time that after I eat something, I wonder just how is that dish made. Last month, I got to sample a basil chicken dish from a restaurant I reviewed called Chulicious. The rich, layered flavors of the chicken thighs marinated in sauce coupled with the aromatic herbs really had me unable to stop eating the dish. I remember between both my parents and I, we finished that entire take-out box of the basil chicken that night. This dish was one of those instances that ended up fueling my culinary curiosity and I delved right into some research. So, without further ado, here’s how things turned out.
