Ken Hom’s Stir-Fried Chicken with Chillies & Basil

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 450g boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into chunks
  • 3 tbsp coarsely chopped garlic
  • 3 tbsp finely sliced shallots
  • 3 fresh green or red chillies, seeded and finely shredded
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce (nam pla)
  • 2 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • a large handful of Thai or ordinary basil leaves

Directions

  1. Heat a wok or large frying pan until it is very hot, then add 1 tbsp of the oil. When it is very hot, add the chicken and stir-fry over a high heat for 8-10 minutes, until browned all over. Using a slotted spoon, take the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  2. Reheat the wok and add the remaining oil. Toss in the garlic and shallots and stir fry for 3 minutes, until golden brown.
  3. Return the chicken to the wok and add the chillies, fish sauce, dark soy sauce and sugar. Stir fry over a high heat for a further 8-10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Stir in the basil leaves and serve at once.
