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


  1. In a bowl, toss the chicken with the oyster sauce and soy sauce and marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Mash the garlic and chile or red pepper flakes (if using), until finely mashed.
  3. In a large skillet or wok, heat the oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is simmering hot, add the garlic-chile mixture and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  4. 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.
