Thai Chicken with Basil

  • 1 1/4 lbs chicken
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 red or green jalapeno chiles, seeded, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped unsalted peanuts, if desired
1.  Cut chicken into bite sizes
2.  Spray a large skillet with cooking spray.  Add oil, heat over medium-high heat.  Cook chicken, garlic and chilies in oil 8 to 10 mins, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center.  Stir in soy sauce and sugar.  Sprinkle with basil, mint and peanuts.  

This was a really easy meal.  I didn't have fresh mint leaves, but just used dried.  I also didn't add the jalepenos because I'm a chicken.  Instead of tasting Thai, it tasted very much like Greek Souvlaki chicken.  I didn't like the peanuts in it, but Kyle did.
