How to make it

  • cut up your garlic, chillis, and ginger,
  • put the garlic and ginger in a bowl on the side.
  • Cut your onions
  • Set the onions and chillies on the side, and cut the chicken up into small chunks. Mince!
  • put some oil in a wok, heat it up, and when it's good and hot (I use a tiny bit of onion to test) add the onions and chillis.
  • Add more oil if you need to. When the onions are a little brown around the edges, add the chicken.
  • After frying the chicken for a little while, until it's a little more white and a little less pink, add your cup of chicken stock.
  • Let the chicken simmer in the stock for a while. Eventually, it won't be pink anymore, and this is when you add a shake of soy sauce (about 1.5 tbsp ).
  • ...a BIG shake of oyster sauce (3 tbsp)...
  • add about 1tbsp of fish sauce:
  • I don't follow measurements when adding those three things. - if you want to adjust the flavour of the food, you can test the food and add more ingredients as required.
  • Add lots of basil. it reduces in size .
  • Let that cook for a little while, and let the basil reduce. Once it's shrunk down a bit, add the garlic and ginger.
  • Stir that in, let it cook, add extra soy/fish/oyster sauces to taste,

    Hi JM, You can tell it's fall. I'm looking at hot hearty "indoor food". Ha.
    This sounds great. I'm glad you included most of the quantities in the directions. I'm not really sure of myself when "adlibbing" quantities. Perhaps I need the comfort of knowing that this is how my pal JM made it, so I know it'll be goood.
    Thanks. Rod

    Hey, Mystic! I was going to post this (Thai Chicken with Basil) but did a search first...Your version is almost identical to mine! I also do a Gnocchi with Brown Sage Butter, and a couple of others....It's hard to believe that we show as "medium" taste compatibility :) Too funny!
    Thanks again for (another) great post!
