Our family has lived in a lovely little home for about a year and a half now. The first few days we lived here we didnt have all of our furniture and were forced to venture out and find places to eat. The first night we happened into this little Thai restaurant and it was the best thing ever! We ended up eating there 3 nights in a row and for the last year have eaten there about once a week. They know all our kids names and know my "regular" order. Yeah, it's an addiction. Earlier this year we hit hard times in the Fuller home and our income was scarce so eating out was no longer an option. I begged the owner to give me the recipe and she finally obliged but would not tell me her secret ingredient. So to the best of my guessing, here is the recipe we have been using and loving the last 6 months to feed our habits!
- 2 tablespoons peanut oil
- 2 chicken breasts thinly sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
- 4 thai chiles thinly sliced (more or less for personal heat level)
- 1 medium onion thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup mushrooms thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper chopped
- 1 green bell pepper chopped
- 1/4 cup dry roasted cashews
- 1 large carrot thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup oyster sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon fish sauce
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
Heat half of oil in wok or large pan. Stir fry chicken in small batches until cooked and browned.
Heat remaining oil in wok. stir fry vegetables until onion softens and mixture is fragrant (about 2 mins). Return chicken to wok with sauces and stock and cook until sauce slightly thickens. Serve over jasmine rice! For even more spice you can mix in hot oil by the teaspoon until the desired level of heat is achieved.
Mama F - 10 - It is one of my favorite dishes for a reason! We love the heat and cooked ours with 6 chiles and plenty of hot oil!
Daddy F - 10 - Wow! That was so good! I am pretty sure I sweat out any toxins I may have had in my body!
Fuller Girls - 3 - Only Middle E was brave enough to try this dish. She started to chew and then spit it out screaming and crying and then wanted her drink. The 3 rating is mostly for the laugh we got as parents after she said "it's not too hot, I will like it". We recommend omitting any spice if you will be feeding this dish to children!
Lucky the Dog - 0 - Although she sat and did her best at begging, I was not about to give her some and then endure the aftermath of doggie indigestion at 3 am. :/
