Recipe Ingredients

1/2 lb 227g / 8ozBoneless chicken breast - or-
1/2 lb 227g / 8oz- mixed vegetables - (see note below)
2   To
6   Red chile peppers (small)
1/2   Fresh lemon grass
2   Kaffir lime leaves
2 tablespoons 30mlOil
1/2 cup 118mlCoconut milk
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSalt
1   To
4 tablespoons 60mlFish sauce - based on personal
  (omit for veggie version)
15   Basil leaves
1 cup 146g / 5.1ozChopped cabbage

Recipe Instructions

Thinly cut chicken into 2-inch strips. (If doing veggie version, cut vegetables into thin strips.) Grind together red chili peppers, lemon grass, and kaffir lime leaves in a food processor or pound in a mortar.

Heat oil to medium-high and saute pepper mixture for 3 minutes. Stir in coconut milk and cook for 2 minutes. Add chicken (or vegetables) and cook for 5 minutes or until cooked (same time for veggies). Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in fish sauce (if using), salt, and basil. Serve on a bed of chopped cabbage.

Note: ===== For mixed vegetables, choose from among bell peppers, string beans, water chestnuts, tomatoes (small cherry tomatoes are best), bamboo shoots, miniature corn, asparagus, cucumbers, zucchini, Japanese eggplant, and mushrooms. I particularly like string beans or asparagus, a few cherry tomatoes, shredded (rather than sliced) bamboo shoots, miniature corn, and some straw mushrooms or slender (Japanese) eggplant.
