Thai Basil Chicken


Thai Basil Chicken is one of those amazing dish that is so easy and quick to whip up. Just make sure you have plenty of steam rice ready as this stir-fry chicken is slightly spicy, delicious, and addictive! :-)


Thai Basil Chicken

Ingredients

2 Cloves Garlic, Chopped
½ Yellow Onion, diced
3 Bird's Eye Chilies, chopped

3 Pieces (about 380g) Skinless & Boneless Chicken Thighs, diced
50 g Asian (Thai) Basil
1 1/2 Tbsp Peanut Oil


Sea Salt to taste
Freshly Ground White Pepper
2 Stalks Scallions, finely sliced



Sauce

2 tsp Oyster Sauce
1 Tbsp Fish Sauce


2 tsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Dark Soy Sauce


½ tsp Corn Starch

2 Tbsp Water

Method



Combine the sauce ingredients and mix well.

Heat the oil in a wok over moderate heat and cook the garlic, onion, and chilies until fragrant. Turn the heat on high and toss in the diced chicken. Give a quick stir, mix in half of the basil, stir and add in the sauce.



Bring the mixture to a boil and season with pepper and sea salt, if necessary. Once the sauce has thickened, mix in the rest of the basil. Serve warm with some steamed rice, and top with scallions.

  1. Love how quick and easy Thai food is to prepare. Love the addition of a fried egg too.

    I eat this dish regularly when we visit Thailand but never tried to make it at home. To be honest, I haven't found Thai basil here although I haven't looked super hard. I imagine it should be pretty easy to grow?

  6. Hi, I was wondering if this will taste the same if I were to use chicken breast instead of chicken thigh?
