Although the more common sweet basil will work well in this quick and easy dish from Digs Magazine, the strong anise flavor of Thai basil makes it something special. Serve with rice.

Ingredients:

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 cup fresh Thai basil leaves

Instructions:

Slice chicken into thin, bite-sized pieces. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok or medium nonstick skillet. Add garlic and red pepper flakes to taste, and cook 1 minute. Add chicken and cook, stirring, for several minutes, until every piece is white on the outside. Stir in fish sauce, water, soy sauce, and brown sugar, and cook several more minutes, stirring constantly. Add Thai basil and cook 1 minute longer, or until the leaves are wilted.
