Ingredients:  
- 1 lb of thinly sliced chicken breasts/cutlets, about 1/8″ thick and cut into 1″ square-ish slices
- 2 cups of chicken broth (I used 2 tsp of Chicken Better Than Bouillon + 2 cups of water)
- 2 13½-14oz cans of coconut milk (unsweetened and do use canned, not the kind in a carton)
- 1 lime, juiced
- 2 tbsp of fish sauce
- 1 tbsp of sesame oil
- 1 tbsp of crushed ginger (or regular ginger if you can't find crushed)
- ½ tbsp of sugar

- 1 tbsp of dried sweet basil

- ¼ cup of Pad Thai sauce
- 1 tbsp of hot sauce
