    I, too, had to look up "Thai chile" and learned that a serrano can be a substitute. According to Thai Kitchen website, it is "The most common hot chili in Thailand, a small slender chili called prik kii noo or "bird's eye chili," rated the second hottest chili, coming in just under the habanero." - 1/18/09

    When using Thai bird chilies seed and get as much membrane out to reduce heat, however it still will be very hot so adjust amount and slice paper thin. Bird chilies have a flavor that should not be missed if they are available. Some Asian markets have them pickled...Chef Jim
    Use oil+soap for hands.

    Not a fan of fish sauce. I substituted soy sauce instead and it was great. I like spicy so that worked well for me. Also a portion of chicken is only 2 oz., I don't think that's very realistic unless you cut itinto half in. cubes instead of slices and stir fry that way. - 7/19/09

    Very good, but it took about 3 servings worth plus 1/2 cup of rice to get full! :) I would say this recipe serves 2 (or 1 for dinner with a smaller portion left for lunch the next day). Very tasty. And I just used a jalapeno for the chile. - 4/7/09

    I made this this week and had enough left overs to take in my lunch for work. My husband also LOVED it and he is a fussy eater...I recommend it to everyone! - 1/20/09
