Spicy Thai Chicken Stir Fry

Serves 2

This is a flavourful stir fry that takes only a few minutes to make.  It’s quite spicy, but when accompanied with rice, I think it’s much easier to handle even for the spice novice.  The colours just pop and make this dish present really well. Other than being a visual treat, it’s a dish that’ll make an impact on your sense of smell.  You’ll be eating with your nose before you even had a chance to see it.  Let’s get started.

Spicy Thai Chicken Stir Fry

Spicy Thai Chicken Stir Fry – Recipe


  • 8-10 fresh red chilies, sliced
  • 10–12 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut lengthwise and finely sliced with the grain
  • 1 Tbsp. oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. fish sauce
  • ½ tsp. sugar
  • ½ white onion, sliced
  • 2 green onions, cut diagonally into long pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. chicken stock
  • ½ cup Thai basil, leaves picked over


  1. In a blender or food processor, add the fresh red chilies and garlic, with 1 Tbsp. of chicken stock and blend to a coarse paste.
  2. Heat oil on high in a heavy bottom, non-stick pan, add the coarse paste and sauté until fragrant, 1 minute.
  3. Add the chicken and stir fry for a few minutes until opaque.  Add the oyster sauce, soy sauce and fish sauce, onion, green onion, chicken stock and continue to stir fry until chicken is cooked through, 3 – 5 minutes.
  4. Season with sugar to balance out the spiciness.  Add Thai basil leaves, stir through and turn off heat.

Dish out and serve topped with extra sliced fresh red chilies with a side of white rice and fried egg.  It’ll present really well and taste absolutely delicious.
