Pad Grapow Chicken (Chicken with Basil) by Chrissy Teigen

I am obsessed with Chrissy Teigen’s recipe books. They are filled with delicious and creative recipes, fabulous photos and a lot of humor! This recipe is so simple yet so delicious!!



1 1/4 pounds, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, sliced into thin strips
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
5 cloves garlic
1 serrano chile (optional) or a couple of shakes of red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 cups basil leaves
Cooked Jasmine rice for serving


In a bowl, toss the chicken with the oyster sauce and soy sauce and marinate for 10 minutes.
Mash the garlic and chile or red pepper flakes (if using), until finely mashed.
In a large skillet or wok, heat the oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is shimmering-hot, add the garlic-chile mixture and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Increase the heat to high, add the chicken, and cook, stirring, until just cooked through, about 4 minutes. Add the basil and cook until wilted, about 1 minute.

Getting the perfect shot sometimes requires heroic measures!
