Spicy Thai Basil Chicken with Asian Brussel Sprouts

SPICY THAI BASIL CHICKEN

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, or as needed
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup sliced shallots
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced Thai chilies, Serrano, or other hot pepper
  • 1 cup very thinly sliced fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cups hot cooked rice

Directions:

  1. Whisk chicken broth, oyster sauce, soy sauce, fish sauce, white sugar, and brown sugar together in a bowl until well blended.
  2. Heat large skillet over high heat. Drizzle in oil. Add chicken and stir fry until it loses its raw color, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in shallots, garlic, and sliced chilies. Continue cooking on high heat until some of the juices start to caramelize in the bottom of the pan, about 2 or 3 more minutes. Add about a tablespoon of the sauce mixture to the skillet; cook and stir until sauce begins to caramelize, about 1 minute.
  3. Pour in the rest of the sauce. Cook and stir until sauce has deglazed the bottom of the pan. Continue to cook until sauce glazes onto the meat, 1 or 2 more minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in basil. Cook and stir until basil is wilted, about 20 seconds. Serve with rice.

FEATURED WINE:

After spending about a good 30 minutes looking for the perfect wine to pairing a decision was finally made!  Hogue makes a mind blowing, yet savoring Riesling. Honestly, their brand is by far one of the most amazing I’ve had the honor of experiencing.

The Real Optimist Rating: Five Stars 

Side Note: Their company statement couldn’t be anything further than the ABSOLUTE TRUTH!
