Minced Chicken with Basil (Gai Pad Gra Pow)

This is a quick and easy recipe that only takes minutes to prepare. I used to make this for my mum and we would serve it with white rice and fried eggs.


1 lbs. minced chicken
1 tablespoon chopped Thai chili peppers
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 small onion, sliced
2 cups holy basil leaves
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon white pepper
2 tablespoon oil

Heat oil on high flame. Add garlic, Thai chili peppers and onion. Fry for about a minute, be careful not to burn the garlic. Add minced chicken. Fry until chicken is dry, about five minutes on high heat. Add fish sauce, soy sauce, dark soy sauce, sugar and white pepper. Continue frying for a few minutes minute. Add in holy basil. Stir and mix well. Cook for another minute. Remove from heat. Serve hot with white rice and fried eggs (optional).
