When time is short in the week but the need for a satisfying but light dinner is high then this is the perfect go to recipe. It takes a matter of minutes to cook and will keep everyone happy. I have served the Asian style chicken with lettuce wraps but it is also delicious with rice or noodles so mix and match. You might also like to add an extra crunch by finishing it off with some peanuts or cashews.
Ingredients- serves 2-3
Small handful of Thai basil
3 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1/2 tbsp runny honey
1 large garlic clove- roughly chopped
fresh red chilli- to taste
Lettuce leaves to serve
1. Start by prepping the chicken; simply cut into small pieces and set aside.
2. Measure out all the remaining ingredients and make sure the garlic and chilli are also ready to go as once you start cooking it is ready in a matter of minutes. Combine in a small bowl.
3. Heat the oil in a frying pan or wok over a medium high heat. Add the chicken pieces and fry until they are golden brown. Add the sauce into the pan and continue until cook until it has thickened.
4. Remove from the heat and finish with torn Thai basil leaves. Serve in a large bowl alongside the lettuce so everyone can help themselves and assemble their own wraps.
