Spicy Thai Chicken


  • 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice

  • 1 tablespoon light vegetable or peanut oil

  • 1 tablespoon Asian hot chili oil

  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts

  • 1 onion

  • 2 red bell peppers

  • 4 cloves garlic

  • 2 cups fresh bean sprouts

  • 1 teaspoon coarse black pepper

  • 1/4 cup Tamari (dark soy sauce)

  • A few dashes Thai fish sauce (about 1 teaspoon)

  • 2 cups fresh basil (about 40 leaves)

  • 1/4 cup salted peanuts, chopped

  • A handful of cilantro


Start rice according to package directions. 

While the oils are heating in a large, nonstick skillet or wok over high heat, cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Add chicken and stir fry until golden, 2-3 minutes. Push chicken off to sides of the skillet, and add onions and peppers to the center of the pan. Stir fry 2-3 minutes, then combine with meat.

Add the garlic, bean sprouts and pepper; stir 1 minute and then add the Tamari and fish sauce. Adjust seasonings to taste and wilt in basil. Remove from heat and serve over rice. Garnish with chopped peanuts and cilantro.
