[Tony's Creation]Chicken skewers with thai basil

For: 4 | Time: 30 mins | Level: Easy | Calories:300/portion

.: Ingredients :.

  1. Chicken breast, 450g, cut into large pieces
  2. Large tomato, 2 pieces, cut into large pieces

.: Seasoning :.

  1. Thai basil, 5 stalk, take the leaves only
  2. Olive oil, 3 tbsp
  3. Sugar, 0.5 tbsp
  4. Fish sauce, 1.5 tbsp
  5. Garlic, 2 cloves, peeled, sliced
  6. Shallot, 1 piece, peeled, sliced
  7. Hot water 1 tbsp
  8. red pepper flake, 0.5 tbsp
  9. Black pepper, 0.5 tsp

.: Steps :.

  1. Roughly blend all the seasoning in a mixer.  Mix the seasoning with the chicken.  Marinade it for 1 hour or overnight
    (Note:  For overnight, reduce the fish sauce by 0.5 tbsp. The seasoning should be roughly blended with some residues)
  2. Remove the chicken from the seasoning.  Thread the chicken and tomato onto a skewers.  Heat the pan with 1 tbsp of oil over medium heat.  Pan-fry the chicken until each side is brown, about 1-2 minutes each side.  Add in 1/4 cup of hot water.  Cover and let it cook for another 5 minutes.  Turn off the heat and let it continue cooking for another 5 minutes.  Serve it in hot.
    (Note: It is hard to cook through the chicken if it is too thick.  It is why simmering it with water.  The chicken should be 80% done before you turn of the heat.)
