Thai Chilli Chicken with Basil


Thai is my absolute favourite cuisine I think (alongside Italian food of course ;-)) As always this is so quick and simple, about 16 minutes in total!

What you’ll need (serves 2):

  • 2 chicken breasts (free range and preferably organic) approx 150g each raw weight
  • 4 large garlic cloves
  • 1 small red onion
  • 2 red chilli’s and 2 green ones
  • 1 dessertspoon of tamari sauce (I use Clearspring)
  • 2 dessertspoons of fish sauce
  • 1 dessertspoon of maple syrup
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves
  • Light olive oil for cooking

What to do:

  • Coarsely chop the garlic and onion
  • Chop the chicken into small pieces
  • Add some light olive oil to a frying pan over a medium heat
  • Add the chicken to the pan and cook for about 8 minutes until its started to brown
  • Remove from the pan and set aside, then add the onion and garlic and fry for a few minutes before adding the chicken back to the pan with all the rest of the ingredients and cook for about another 8 minutes
  • Add the basil leaves, stir through, then serve immediately.
  • I like mine with a portion of brown basmati rice
