Easy and Spicy Thai Basil Chicken with Egg

We just started growing Thai basil and needed a recipe to try it in. My husband went crazy for it and has decided that we need to put it in our favorite recipes file. The only change I made was that I used serrano peppers instead of Thai chilies.

Oh my gosh…so very good! I couldn’t find Thai chile peppers so ended up using serrano peppers, but good all the same. The entire family loved this dish…so flavorful and delicious!

Ingredients:

2 eggs

11/2 cups cooked white rice

2 Thai chile peppers, or more to taste

2 cloves garlic, peeled, or more to taste

1 chicken breast half, cut into bite-size pieces

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons oyster sauce

1 teaspoon white sugar

14 leaves Thai basil

Directions:

Coat a skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat; cook and stir eggs until scrambled and set, about 5 minutes. Divide rice between 2 bowls and add eggs to rice.
Grind Thai chile peppers and garlic together with a mortar and pestle or in a food processor.
Coat skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat; cook and stir pepper-garlic mixture until fragrant and garlic is golden brown, about 1 minute. Add chicken; cook and stir until chicken is about halfway-cooked, about 3 minutes.
Mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sugar into chicken; cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 3 minutes more. Add basil and stir for 10 seconds. Remove skillet from heat and continue stirring mixture until basil is wilted; spoon over rice and egg.

Footnotes:

If the sauce seems too thick in the pan, you can add a little water while cooking.
