Fantastic spicy quick lunch or dinner. The egg really makes the meal. We are obsessed with this dish right now! Serving with sliced cucumber and tomato is delicious.

  • Grind Thai chile peppers and garlic together with a mortar and pestle or in a food processor.

  • Coat skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat; cook and stir pepper-garlic mixture until fragrant and garlic is golden brown, about 1 minute. Add chicken; cook and stir until chicken is about halfway-cooked, about 3 minutes.

  • Mix soy sauce, oyster sauce, and sugar into chicken; cook and stir until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 3 minutes more. Add basil and stir for 10 seconds. Remove skillet from heat and continue stirring mixture until basil is wilted; spoon over rice and egg.

Cook's Note:

If the sauce seems too thick in the pan, you can add a little water while cooking.

I submitted the orginal recipe and it was changed slightly by the All Recipes staff. Everything is accurate except that when we serve this we serve it with an over easy egg rather than scrambled. The yolk from the egg is absolutely amazing as it soaks in to the rice and meat. I hope you enjoy the recipe! Read More

Couldn't find either Thai peppers or Thai basil so I used serrano peppers and regular basil. This was so full of flavor and so darn easy to make I simply couldn't believe it. I did use low-sodium soy sauce but there still may be some folks who think it's too salty (not us!). Next time I'll probably add a little grated carrot to the rice to give it a pop of color but we really enjoyed this. Garnished with some chopped peanuts and would add them again! Read More

We just started growing Thai basil and needed a recipe to try it in. My husband went crazy for it and has decided that we need to put it in our favorite recipes file. The only change I made was that I used serrano peppers instead of Thai chilies. Read More

I made this with Serrano peppers and regular basil as others had mentioned. I also added hoisin sauce to the sauce mix because I didn't have oyster sauce. It was very yummy! Read More
