  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped finely
  • 3 Thai chili peppers, chopped finely

  • 1 Tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon thick black soy sauce

  1. Cook the chopped garlic and chilis in a good amount of oil (2-4 Tablespoons) over high heat until the garlic is golden brown.
  2. Add the chopped chicken and cook until it is done. While it's cooking, use the spatula to break apart any pieces that clump together.
  3. Add all three sauces and saute a minute longer. Do a taste-test here and adjust seasonings if needed.
