One Pot Spicy Basil Chicken boasts a delicious spicy sauce, is easy to make, and is also healthy (254 calories and 2g carbs per serving!)- it's the perfect dinner!
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan, allow to heat up. Add shallots and garlic and saute for about 30 seconds. Add chicken and saute until chicken is cooked through, about 7-9 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine fish sauce, sugar, soy sauce, chili paste, water, cornstarch and salt. Add mixture to chicken and turn heat to high; cook for 1 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Stir to coat the chicken. Remove from heat and stir in basil leaves.
I love to double the sauce recipe for this recipe. It gives extra to serve over rice or whatever you decide to serve the chicken over.
