Gai Pad Gaprow

i tried out this Thai recipe from kak Jun's blog...we think it means fried chicken with basil...

a lovely dish...when i was making this dish, i did not have thet basil leaves ini hand, so instead i used coriander leaves...tasted good as well....!

500g chicken cut into small pieces, marinate with 3 tbsp light soy sauce for 15 min(i used the normal soy sauce)

4 shallots, sliced

4 garlic, sliced

4 tbsp oil

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp fish sauce

3 red chillies, sliced

salt and pepper

5 kaffir leaves, sliced

1 cup basil leaves ( i used coriander leaves)

  • heat oil in wok, fry the shallots and garlic till fragrant

  • add in the chicken pieces, fry until 3/4 cooked

  • add in soy sauce and fish sauce. add in a little bit of water if it's too dry

  • add in salt and pepper. mix well

  • add in kaffir leaves, basil and red chillies. mix well.

  • when the chicken is cooked remove from heat and serve...
