Rescue Cooking Turned Out Well

Rescue cooking last night turned out well. We’d gotten some Thai basil chicken last week that wasn’t great — lots of meat, not enough sauce, not enough other stuff. So last night, I took some of the green onions from the farmer’s market, added in a cube of frozen ginger-garlic, sautéed them with bell pepper and a chopped green chili and about a cup of chopped basil (also from farmer’s market), added the leftover chicken and a cup of freshly-mixed sauce (chicken broth + soy sauce + oyster sauce + fish sauce + white sugar + brown sugar), simmered it all for a few minutes, and served it over hot rice.


The only thing that would’ve made it better is if I’d had Thai basil instead, ah well.
