This is delicious! This recipe makes a lot, so we are planning to take it for lunch for the next few days... taking the spinach/basil combo in a separate box from the rice and putting it together at lunch. I made this with tempeh instead of chicken, but I think tofu would be great too. I used brown basmati rice and Thai basil. The peanut sauce is marvelous. This would be even better if topped with shredded carrots and chopped peanuts. My only problem with this recipe is the order that the ingredients are listed - it would be better if they were listed in order of use. Thanks, Uncle Ben!

Serving this for dinner tonight. I just finished putting it all together and had to check it for "quality assurance". It is a wonderful combination of flavors. Very refreshing & would make a great salad during warm weather. When I serve it I will garnish with finely shredded carrot and chopped peanuts.

I made this with quinoa instead of rice. My husband (who is normally pretty picky) took one bite and said "This is really good!". And it was. So delicious and refreshing! Next time I will use thai basil.
