Pad Kra Pow (Holy Basil Chicken)
Pearl Yee’s Milder Version
Pearl used ground chicken, one green Anaheim pepper and one red Fresno pepper (all without seeds), and she substituted the Thai peppers, water, and sugar with 2 tablespoons of Thai chili sauce instead.
(Warning: When dicing fresh chili peppers, you may want to wear synthetic gloves) Otherwise, your fingers do tingle and burn!
For those who want no heat, just use a regular red bell pepper.
Ed pan-fried a perfect sunny side egg and layered it on top of the Pad Kra Pow over rice.
