    Tim964's Note:

    This is my adaptation of an authentic Thai recipe. Thai basil is a very unique flavor and shines in this simple dish. Adjust the hot peppers to your own taste - as written, it is inedible for me, and I like hot food! Personlly, I use 3 jalapenos and do not include the seeds. Serve with sambal olek or minced peppers so that those who like it really hot can add their own heat.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat a wok until it is very hot. Add the peanut oil and stir fry the garlic followed a few seconds later by the onion. Stir fry for about 15 to 20 seconds before adding the chicken. Stir fry for 1 to 2 minutes, or until most of the chicken has changed color on the outside and is no longer pink.
    2. 2
      Toss in the chillies and lime zest. Sprinkle soy sauce and fish sauce over the mixture and stir-fry for another 15 to 20 seconds, then add the Thai basil. Stir-fry another minute, or until the basil is wilted and the chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with white pepper. Serve over white rice or in lettuce "cups.".
