Just three ingredients - Thai Basil chicken

So I got this awesome little book about cooking with just a few ingredients and I thought I would share a few things from it along the way. The first one is an obvious favourite dish of mine considering I have a thing for Thai basil in general.

So it's filled with recipes consisting of three or less main ingredients and this makes planning for anything in it a real breeze. On the downside, the ingredients really need to be the best of breed as the entire dish is basically dependent on them - so no cheap varieties!

On the way home, I picked up two refrigerated chicken breast fillets, the nicest-looking red bell pepper I could find and a pot of relatively fresh Thai basil. The rest is pretty obvious. Slice them, fry them in olive oil, spread the basil over the lot and gently toss it all around the pan for a while. Serve with salt and peppar. Here's the ten minute result which includes the time it took to manually wash the tools used.

Neat food

It looks quite nice, it tastes quite nice, and it's quite the GI spec as well. Add rice if you're not into that kind of thing. Until next time, happy cooking! Oh, and prepare a few bottles of high-quality olive oil for the upcoming encounters: one regular, one infused with garlic and one infused with herbs. They will be used a lot.
