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?

Raw Energy Bars~Chocolate, Cashew, And Almond

I get energized everytime I make Raw Energy Bars at home. I have tried several recipes and flavors before; but, this Chocolate, Cashew, and Almond flavor is currently my favorite! It's made from scratch using raw ingredients, such as Medjool dates, cashew, almond, cocoa, and coconut. You will be amazed with the end result. Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
