Stir fried Chilli Chicken - Fastest meal ever!
I'm not one for posting recipes but often take a quick photo and pop it onto instagram ( apparently instagram is for those who cant read!) any way the lovely Reddskingyal was positively salivating at this piccie so I promised that I would share said recipe.
Firstly this is fast, very fast. Secondly it is satisfying too. Third the previous two points make it an ideal mid week meal or a description for sex. We serve it on a bed of spinach or rocket with maybe some tomatoes ( roasted are very good ) and some home made flat bread. This meal is in our family top 10 of mid week meals.
I give you Chilli Chicken
4 -6 cloves of garlic - peeled
1 red chilli or 2 red birds eye chillies - halved. it's up to you if you want to leave te seeds in
2 tbsp approx olive oil
2 skinless boneless chicken fillets cut into chunks
Large handful of basil leaves
Mash the garlic and chillies into a paste. Sometimes I do this on the chopping board, other times in the pestle and ,mortar. Dribble a bit of the olive oil to assist.
Heat wok or large frying pan. add rest of olive oil. Add the chilli/garlic paste. Stir fry for 10- 15 seconds!
Add the chicken and stir fry for 5 mins til chicken cooked through.
Add the soy sauce and basil leaves stir fry for 1 more minute.
