This is another Thai Chicken Basil recipe.

This one isn’t as spicy as this one. This recipe is from this book.

5 oz bean thread noodles
2 tbs fish sauce
1 tbs rice wine
5 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tbs finely chopped scallions
1 lb skinless, boneless chicken breasts, sliced
2 tbs vegetable oil
1 small red pepper or any hot pepper, chopped
1 bell pepper, seeded and sliced
1 red onion, sliced
2 tbs soy sauce
1 tbs water
2 tsps brown sugar
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves

Soak noodles in very hot water for 10 minutes; drain.

In a small bowl combine fish sauce, rice wine, 2 cloves of garlic and scallions. Add the chicken and stir to coat. Cover and allow to marinate for 20 minutes to 1 hour. Drain.

In a wok or frying pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add the remaining 3 cloves of garlic and the hot pepper. Cook for 1 minute, always stirring.

Add the chicken and cook until no longer pink, 4-5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium and add the bell pepper, onion, noodles, soy sauce, water and sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until noodles are heated through, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in basil.

We did make a few changes. We used most of the marinade and didn’t add any water. We also added about twice the amount of soy sauce. Plus, our Thai basil had gone bad, so we just added about 1 tsp of dried basil.

It was very good, but could have used more noodles and more hot pepper.
