A great and very easy dish to make (please see how I rate). Made some changes suggested by bungalowten (except the egg addition), it really was a hit among everyone at the table (I have previously made the original version which was good too, but would agree that the additions make this recipe stand out).
We just got done having this for dinner and I had to come online right away to write my review and document the changes I made this time around. I used hot rice (the rice was cooking while I prepped other ingredient). The chicken was pre-cooked. I used a bit of sesame oil with my vegetable oil, I cooked two eggs first and added the shreds at the end, I added chopped carrots with the garlic, and chopped green onions with the chicken. I only use 1/2 T of sugar, and 1 1/2 T of soy. No shallots as we didn't have any. This recipe is so good, my husband and son loved it as much as I did. It will probably be a weekly dinner in our house.
I loved this dish! I saw a Youtube, or similar, video of a Thai mother making this dish, so I wanted to do it, too. I found your recipe, and decided to try it. I did make some slight adjustments (sorry), both out of personal preference, and lack of ingredients. I added sliced onion with the garlic and chicken, because I like onion, and didn't have any green onions, on hand. I don't lke fish sauce, so I subbed hoisin sauce, which they used in the video (in addition to the fish sauce). I didn't have any chilis, so I used that red Sriracha hot chili sauce (about 1T+). I didn't have any cilantro, which bummed me out...next time, for sure! And, I have an Aerogarden with Thai, regular, and Red Rubin basil, which aren't really big, yet, so I pruned enough off of all 3 to make about 1/2 cup (I love the stuff!) This dish has a lot of flavor; I will definitely be making it again, soon! (Oh, and I, too, almost ate the whole dish, myself!) Thanks!
This was so good I almost finished the whole wok full! I did change it up a little. I used shrimp that I stir fried in chili sauce, added some peas carrots ginger and egg. Instead of shallots I had green onions on hand. And at the end I add just a little sesame oil and toasted sesame seeds on top. YUMMY!!! No more take out for me!
This was delicious! I could not find the pepper so I used some thai chili sauce I had already on hand, and added that in to the chicken. I also opted to add the red pepper as someone suggested. For basil I had to use regular, but it was still great. I wouldn't change a thing next time. Easy to make and such great flavor for your efforts.
Just finished eating this and it was very good! Made it for a lunch do with some of my girlfriends and it was a big hit. I love how it is very flavoursome but also healthy! A few changes: I didn't have shallots so I finely chopped a small onion and stirfried it with the garlic. Instead of soy sauce I used kecap manis and omitted the sugar. Used a splash of hot chilli sauce instead of chillies. Didnt have any cilantro but basil was very yummy! Also I added diced red bell pepper at the second step and the colours looked so nice together! This will be a regular :)
This was amazing, and very easy to prepare. my husband loved it. I added minced ginger as other reviewer suggested and the result was very good.
this was very easy and very flavorful. i doubled the recipe and almost quadrupled the sauce mixture(4x as much fish, soy sauce etc.) i love thai food and this was delicious. i made it spicier by adding to my own serving (not the prepared meal), a homemade concoction of chopped thai chili peppers that i mix into fish sauce. i make this ahead and store it in airtight container in my fridge. i know some thai restaurants have this as a condiment, but i have never been able to find it prepared, so i make my own. it is THAI HOT!! so be warned.
This was absolutely delicious! I sauteed mushrooms with the chilies and garlic. Then added a tablespoon of minced ginger right before moving on to step two. I used regular basil, and managed to find the Thai red chili peppers. Came out wonderful. Boyfriend and I loved it :)
