Clean Eating Thai Basil Chicken Fried Rice

chicken fried riceThai basil chicken fried rice, or Khao Pad Kra Prao Gai as it’s known in Thailand, is a staple in Thai  cooking.

You can adjust the spices to make it as spicy or as mild as you like.  Mix it up with beef strips or shrimp instead of chicken, and serve with chopsticks for authentic flair.

Note:  This dish asks for cooked rice.  If you have some on hand it makes cooking time so much faster.  Otherwise cook up a batch and you are ready to go.

Ingredients:

  • 2 shallots, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 scallions, whites and greens, sliced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, passed through a garlic press

  • 3 tbsp oyster sauce
  • Half tsp of sea salt
  • Half cup of Thai basil
  • 2 cups of cooked brown rice
  • 1 handful of fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes

  3. Add fish and oyster sauces and sea salt.  Stir fry into mixture.  Reduce heat slightly if too hot.
