Recipe Ingredients for Thai spicy basil chicken

5 oz skinless chicken breast
1/4 cup leaves, whole(6 g) Basil, Fresh
1/4 cup slices Carrots
1 cloves, raw Garlic
1 tbsp chopped Shallots
1/4 serving 100% Pure Peanut Oil
2 tbsp Soy Sauce
1/2 cup green pepper
1/4 cup green beans
1 tsp fish sauce
1/2 cup broccoli

Recipe Directions for Thai spicy basil chicken

  1. Prepare the ingredients as instructed. Leave the fresh basil leaves whole; the flower buds may also be used. The dried holy basil will soften when soaked in tap water for about 10 to 15 minutes. Pull off and discard the hard stems. Drain.

  2. Heat a wok until its surface is smoking hot. Swirl in the oil to coat the wok surface. Wait a few seconds for the oil to heat, then stir in the garlic, followed a few seconds later with the shallots or onion. Stir another 15 to 20 seconds before adding the chicken. Stir-fry 1 to 2 minutes, or until most of the chicken has changed color on the outside and is no longer pink.

  3. Toss in the chillies, slivered kaffir lime leaves (if using), and softened dried holy basil (if using). Sprinkle black soy sauce over the mixture and stir-fry for another 15 to 20 seconds. Season to taste with fish sauce, then stir in the fresh basil. Toss well. Stir-fry another 1/2 to 1 minute, or until the basil is wilted and the chicken cooked through. Sprinkle with white pepper. Stir and transfer to a serving dish, or spoon directly over individual plates of plain steamed rice.
