Thai Basil Chicken

Thai food is one of my FAVOURITE things to make. Earlier this year I started making a red curry and my obsession with Thai food was well on its way.

There’s something intriguing about chicken mixed with chilli and garlic and delicately flavoured with the liquorice flavor of Thai basil.

This recipe is super, super easy to make, grab your ingredients and let’s get started!



7-8 small red fresh Thai red chillies

7-8 cloves of fresh garlic

3 sliced shallots

1 lb boneless chicken thigh meat cut in small pieces

3 tbsps hoisin sauce

3 tbsps light soya sauce

3 tbsps dark soya sauce

1 cup Thai basil or Holy basil leaves



Coarsely slice the garlic and chillies and pound together in a mortar and pestle

Heat some oil in a wok and sauté the chilli garlic mixture

Add the shallots and sauté

Add the chicken and cook till done

Add the sauces and stir well

Finally add the basil and serve
