Number of Servings: 4


    4 tbsp peanut oil
    2 jalapeno peppers, seeded & minced
    2 tbsp minced garlic
    1 tbsp minced ginger
    2 medium onions, sliced
    1/2 cup chopped scallions
    1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 cup chopped fresh basil
    2 tbsp fish sauce
    1/2 cup white wine


Place a large, deep skillet or wok over high heat. Add half the oil and immediately toss in the jalapenos and half the garlic and ginger. Stir for 15 seconds, and then add the onion and continue stirring for 5 minutes

Remove the vegetables from the pan and lower the heat to medium. Add the remaining oil, garlic and ginger to the pan along with the chicken. Raise the heat to high again and cook until the chicken is no longer pink, about 5 minutes

Return the vegetables to the pan and mix in the scallions, basil and fish sauce. Season with salt and pepper and then add the white wine, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan until liquid is reduced.
