Stir Fry...great flavors and pretty much a one pot dish...except for making the rice. Speaking of rice there are a lot of them out there so don't cut yourself short on flavor by going with white rice...try basmati, jasmine or brown. If you don't have the fish sauce, you could just use chicken broth. You could add other vegetables to this or substitute the chicken with shrimp!
1 lb boneless chicken tenders cut about 1 inch wide
4 shallots, chopped
4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1 cup fresh basil coarsely chopped
1 tbl fish sauce
1 tbl lime juice
1 tbl light brown sugar
2 tbl canola oil
1/2 cup water
pinch of red pepper flake
In a large pan heat oil and add shallots, garlic and red pepper flake. Cook about a minute and add chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Cook chicken about 4-5 minutes.
Combine the fish sauce, lime juice, brown sugar and water. Add mixture to the chicken and cook until the liquid reduces and makes a sauce. Remove from heat and add the basil. Serve over rice.
Another simple recipe!
