Thai Basil Chicken

    Thai Basil Chicken

  • 1 lb. or more skinned, boned chicken breasts
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced and crushed
  • 1-2 green onions, chopped
  • 2-3 TBS peanut oil
  • 1-5 Thai peppers, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 2-5 TBS fish sauce
  • Handful crunched up peanuts
  • Cut chicken into tiny slivers. Heat up wok, add oil, and stir fry garlic, peanuts and green onions until tender but not brown, about 1-2 minutes. Add thai peppers and cook, stirring, about 1 minute more. Add chicken and stir fry until cooked through. Stir in basil and fish sauce, mixing thoroughly. Serve over rice, if desired. Sometimes I squeeze lemon or lime on the top. Sometimes I add Curry Powder to the recipe.

    Notice the variation of amounts - I usually don't use exact measurements - it makes for a little variation each time. Find that "Happy Medium" for yourself!
