This Thai basil chicken is a fast and easy Thai stir fry made with chicken, Thai basil, and vegetables! Add chilis peppers for extra spice and serve with rice and a fried egg!
2 cups chicken cut into bite-size pieces; about 1 lb
1 ¼ cup chopped basil
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
½ cup chopped vegetables (onions, peppers, green beans)
2 stalks of green onions
red and green chili peppers (optional for spice); minced
2 Tablespoon liquid aminos (or soy sauce)
1 Tablespoon oyster sauce
1 ½ Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons fish sauce
4 cloves garlic minced
Sauce: Add all the ingredients for the sauce together in a small bowl and set aside.
2 tablespoon soy sauce, oyster sauce, brown sugar, fish sauce, and garlic
Cook chicken: Heat your pan or wok over high heat and add the oil and the chicken. Stir fry until the chicken is almost cooked.
Add vegetables: Next add the minced chili peppers (if using) and vegetables. Stir fry until fork tender but still crisp.
Add sauce: Add the sauce and stir fry until the sauce thickens and coats the chicken. If you prefer less sauce, start with half.
Add basil: Turn off the heat and toss in the basil, reserving a few leaves for garnish. The heat will soften and wilt the basil leaves. Garnish with fresh leaves and sliced peppers. Serve immediately with rice. Enjoy!
