[Tony's Creation] Pan-fried chicken fillet in thai style

[Prep: 15 minutes | Cook: 20 minutes | Serve: 4 people |
Calories: 356 per serving (Estimated) ]

.: Info :.

This fried chicken is delicious.  It is really out of my expectation.  The skin is crispy and it is so juicy.

To make it great, you must coat the chicken with flour only when it is ready to cook.  Otherwise, if you coat it too early, the crust will be too wet and too thick which won't be good to eat

if you cannot find thai basil, simply ignore it.  Although it gives a perfect touch to this dish.  Also, please buy a high quality fish sauce.  The low quality one is only salty.  It won't make anything good.

.: Ingredients :.

1- 400g of boneless chicken thighs, cut into large piece
2- 1 medium onion, peeled, sliced
3- 2 tbsp of minced garlic
4- 1 shallot, peeled, diced
5- 8-10 Thai basil leaves, optional
6- 1 large egg, blended
7- 5 tbsp of flour or cornstarch
8- 1 green bell pepper, sliced
9- 150g of bean sprout
10- 1 tsp of fish sauce 

.: Seasoning :.

1- 2 tbsp of fish sauce
2- 1 tsp sugar
3- 1 tsp of white pepper

.: Steps :.

Marinade the chicken with the seasoning for 10 minutes.  Coat the chicken with egg.  Before pan-fry the chicken.  Coat the chicken with the flour. 

Heat the pan with 3 tbsp of oil over medium high heat.  Pan-fry the chicken until both sides are light brown. 

Turn the heat to medium and continue to pan-fry until the chicken is done.  Dish it up and drain it over a paper towel.

Keep 1 tbsp of the oil in the pan and remove the exceeded oil.  Heat the non-sticky pan over medium high heat.  Stir fry the garlic, shallots, green pepper and the onion with 1/3 tsp of salt until onion is soft (about 2 minutes).  Stir in bean sprout, basil and fish sauce, and mix it well.  Dish it up and top with the chicken.  Serve it in hot.

.: Tips :.

1- It is will better to coat the chicken with flour just right before pan-frying it.
2- It is high recommend to buy a high quality fish sauce.  It will enhance the flavor.
3- You can replace the chicken with the pork chops.
