Thai Basil Chicken

This is just good. You should try it.

Thai Basil Chicken
  • 1/4 c. soy sauce
  • 1/4 c. lime juice
  • 1-2 tsp chili garlic sauce, more or less for spice
  • 1 c. basil leaves
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • Vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 scallions, sliced
  • 4 chicken breasts, sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 c. snow peas, trimmed
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
Cooking Directions:
Combine soy sauce, lime juice, basil, and tomato in a small bowl. Mix and set aside. Heat about one tablespoon oil in a wok. Add garlic and chili sauce. Stir-fry 1 minute. Add chicken and cook until 1 min, add scallions and red pepper and cook until chicken is lightly browned. Add snow peas and sauce mixture. Reduce heat and simmer 2 min, until chicken is cooked all the way through. Top with extra basil leaves. Serve immediately over rice.

*Add more chili garlic sauce at the end if you like spice.
