Via No Recipes

What you need:
1 Tbs vegetable oil
4 cloves garlic minced
1-5 chilies minced with seeds
1/2 small onion sliced
1/2 lbs ground chicken thigh meat
1 Tbs fish sauce
2 tsp brown sugar
pinch of white pepper
3 sprigs of Thai basil, stems removed

How to fix:
Heat a wok or a cast iron skillet over medium high heat until very hot. Add the oil, garlic and chilies and stir fry until until the garlic is very fragrant. Add the onions and continue stir frying until the onions have wilted. Add the ground chicken and fry until the chicken is cooked. Season with the fish sauce, sugar and white pepper. If your pan was hot enough you should not have any liquid at the bottom of the pan, but if you do, continue cooking until the liquid is gone. Add the basil and toss a couple of time until the leaves are wilted and bright green.

  1. Thai basil chicken is delicious except my husband likes it with so much spice that the rest of us can't eat it. Thanks for sharing the recipe, maybe one day I'll try it at home.
