Thai Basil Chicken

Ingredients

2 Cloves Garlic, Chopped
½ Yellow Onion, diced
3 Bird's Eye Chilies, chopped
3 Pieces (about 380g) Skinless & Boneless Chicken Thighs, diced
50 g Asian (Thai) Basil
1 1/2 Tbsp Peanut Oil
Sea Salt to taste
Freshly Ground White Pepper
2 Stalks Scallions, finely sliced

Sauce
2 tsp Oyster Sauce
1 Tbsp Fish Sauce
2 tsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Dark Soy Sauce
½ tsp Corn Starch
2 Tbsp Water

Method

Combine the sauce ingredients and mix well. Heat the oil in a wok over moderate heat and cook the garlic, onion and chilies until fragrant. Turn the heat on high and toss in the diced chicken. Give a quick stir, mix in half of the basil, stir and add in the sauce.

Bring the mixture to a boil and season with pepper and sea salt, if necessary. Once the sauce has thickened, mix in the rest of the basil. Serve warm with some steamed rice, and top with scallions.
