Thai chicken with fresh basil


3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 lb chicken breast – boned
2 tbsp garlic – coarsely chopped
3 tbsp nuoc nam (fish sauce)
3/4 cup basil – thinly sliced
2 tbsp sugar
2 serrano chilies

2 tbsp water

How to prepare

Skin chicken and cut into 1 x 1 in strips. Remove stems from chilies and cut lengthwise into thin strips (discard the seeds). Heat oil in wok or large skillet over high heat. Add garlic and about 10 seconds. Add 1/2 cup of basil and the chilies and stir-fry just until basil wilts, about 1 minute. Add chicken and stir-fry about 3 minutes. Add nuoc mam, water and sugar and stir-fry until sauce bubbles and thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Add remaining 1/4 cup of basil and stir-fry until just wilted, about 5 seconds. Serve immediately with steamed rice
