      What a lovely recipe Amanda. I enjoyed this dish very much. Loved the use of the snow peas, lemongrass and kaffir leaves, so yummy. We really enjoyed the soft subtle flavors in this delicious chicken dish. I served it over jasmin rice. Thanks for sharing a dish that I will make again. Made for Diabetic Tailgate party.

      Took a trip to a recommended Asian market this past weekend & managed to pick up the kaffir lime leaves AND the Thai basil that was called for in this recipe ~ Am pretty sure I could have found a suitable substitute, but wanted to do it up right! This is a great tasting chicken dish, & one worth keeping around! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged, made & reviewed for a teammate in Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #18]

      WOW. this was superb. I sadly didn't have any kaffir lime leaves so used a little lime zest (i know, not the same flavor but all i had). Will make this often!
