Thai Chicken and Basil Stir Fry

00001
  • 2 cups uncooked jasmine rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce ( I use tamari for gluten free)
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes ( I use chopped fresh red chillis)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger root, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 3 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 green onions, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh basil leaves

Bring rice and water to a boil in a pot. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 20 minutes.

In a bowl, mix the coconut milk, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, fish sauce, and red pepper flakes (or chopped fresh red chilli).

In a wok, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion, ginger, and garlic, and cook until lightly browned. Mix in chicken strips, and cook about 3 minutes, until browned. Stir in the coconut milk sauce. Continue cooking until sauce is reduced be about 1/3. Mix in mushrooms, green onions, and basil, and cook until heated through. Serve over the cooked rice.
