Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of high oleic safflower oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat and add the shallots.
  2. Cook the shallots until they are translucent and soft, about 3 minutes.
  3. Turn the heat up to medium high and add the chicken, bell peppers, grated ginger, minced garlic, ground pepper, and sliced chilies.
  4. Continue to stir fry until the chicken is nearly cooked through, about 2 minutes, then add the sauce.
  5. Cook for another minute and the sauce will thicken. Add more soy sauce or salt if you need to.
  6. Stir in the fresh basil at the end.
  7. Squeeze a little lime juice on top if you have some limes on hand.

Even though I changed it, this is still a 5 star recipe. As my fish sauce was missing in action, I added about a teaspoon of five spice powder. Rather than using regular basil, I used cinnamon basil. This really turned out well. Thank you for posting!
