How to Make It?
- a package of chicken drumsticks
- fresh garlic cloves
- fresh ginger roots
- fresh Thai Basil leaves (key ingredient)
- dash of sugar
- Soy sauce (1/2 cup)

In a pot, place oil and crushed garlic clove and sliced ginger root and heat. When sizzling, add chopped chicken legs with bone and soy sauce and a half cup of water and reduce heat to low after boiling. Cook for approx. 45 minutes and add the Basil leaves and a dash of sugar and cook another 10 minutes. That's all there is to it.
This dish is better served hot along with a bowl of freshly cooked white rice. You will recognize the distinct aroma that comes from the Thai basil leaves.
This dish is so simple, I was debating whether to include it as part of my recipe book. I decided to add it because it is one of my son's favorite dish.
