Thai

This quick and flavoursome meal is inspired by a famous Thai street food dish called Pad Krapow Gai. You'll stir-fry chicken with crushed chilli and garlic in a sweet and savoury sauce, serve it with lemongrass rice and then top the lot with a striking sesame fried egg. (Dairy-free: see our FAQs for details.)

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Thai Basil Chicken & Sesame Fried Egg

Bash the lemongrass with a rolling pin

Add the basmati rice, bashed lemongrass and 350ml [700ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked, then remove from the heat and cover until serving

2 Thai Basil Chicken & Sesame Fried Egg

Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the shallot[s]

Chop the red chilli[es] roughly

Peel the garlic

Add the garlic and chopped chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) to a pestle & mortar and bash until crushed into small rough pieces 

3 Thai Basil Chicken & Sesame Fried Egg

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-low heat 

Once hot, add the black and white sesame seeds, crack the eggs into the pan and cook, covered, for 2 min or until done to your liking – this is your sesame fried egg

4 Thai Basil Chicken & Sesame Fried Egg

Meanwhile, cut the chicken breast[s] into very small bite-sized pieces  

Transfer the cooked eggs to a plate and cover to keep warm

Reserve the pan

5 Thai Basil Chicken & Sesame Fried Egg

Return the pan to a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the sliced shallot with the bashed garlic and chopped chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!)

Cook for 1 min or until fragrant

Add the chopped chicken and cook for a further 1 min

6 Thai Basil Chicken & Sesame Fried Egg

Add the hoisin sauce, fish sauce, soy sauce, 1/2 tbsp [1 tbsp] sugar and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] water

Cook for 1-2 min or until the sauce begins to reduce and the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)

7 Thai Basil Chicken & Sesame Fried Egg

Once done, remove the pan from the heat

Pick the basil leaves from their stalks, discard the stalks

Add the basil leaves to the chicken and give everything a good old mix up – this is your Thai basil chicken
