Number of Servings: 4


    1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
    3 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    2 teaspoons vegetable oil
    1 large (12 ounces), cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
    2 red or green chiles (serrano or jalapeno), seeded and cut into matchstick strips
    2 teraspoons minced, peeled fresh ginger
    2 garlic cloves, crushed with garlic press
    1 1/2 cups loosely packed fresh basil leaves


1. With knife held in slanting position, almost parallel to cutting surface, cut each chicken breast half crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. In medium bowl, combine fish sauce, soy sauce, and brown sugar; add chicken slices, tossing to coat. Let marinate 5 minutes.
2. In nonstick 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until very hot. Add chicken with marinade and cook, stirring frequently (stir-frying), until chicken loses its pink color throughout, 3 to 4 minutes. With slotted spoon, transfer chicken to bowl.
3. Add onion to marinade remaining in the skillet and cook (stir-frying) until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Stir in chiles, ginger, and garlic; cook one minute.
4. Return chicken to skillet; heat through. Stir in basil leaves just before serving.
