Stir-fried Chicken with Basil

Stir-fried Chicken with Basil

You can easily enjoy Thai cuisine at home. The slightly spicy, rich flavor goes well with plain steamed rice.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Chicken thigh meat
150 g
Bell peppers
Basil (2)
more than 5 leaves
Garlic (1)
1 clove
Red chili peppers
2 to 3
1 tablespoon
〇 Fish sauce
1 tablespoon
〇Oyster sauce
1 tablespoon
〇Soy sauce 3
(1 teaspoon)


1. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Roughly cut up the bell peppers. Slice the chili peppers. Tear up any big basil leaves.
2. Put the oil (not listed in the ingredient list), chili peppers and (if using chopped garlic) garlic in a frying pan, and turn on the heat.
3. If you prefer this to be slightly spicy, cut the chili peppers in half and take out the seeds before adding to the stir fry.
4. When the oil is fragrant, add the chicken.
5. When the chicken is halfway cooked, add the bell peppers. Add the mirin and stir fry to evaporate the alcohol.
6. Add the 〇 seasoning ingredients and mix them in. Turn off the heat, add the 2 basil leaves, and it's done.
7. I've flavored this very well so that it goes well with plain rice. If you add the 3 soy sauce, reduce the oyster sauce.
