Diced Chicken Southeast Asian Style

The distinctive taste of southeastern Asian cooking comes from the merging of all five of the palatable tastes; sour, salty, sweet, spicy and bitter. Journeyetc.

Southeast Asian region, countries like Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, and Filipino islands are a melting pot of flavors and plenty of exotic ingredients, like coconut milk, Thai basil, fish sauce, chillies. The region stretches east from India and Bangladesh to the southern border of China, encompassing the mainland countries of Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and the island countries of Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

  1. Clean and cut the chicken into small dices, add in marinade and let stand for 30 minutes. Chop the dried chillies. Mix the ingredients for the sauce and set aside.
  2. Heat up a wok or a pan with 1-2 tablespoons of oil, add in chicken and stir until the colour changed. Add in spring onions and chillies, stirring briefly and pour in prepared sauce. Stir until mixed. Switch off the heat and sprinkle dried basil over. Stir until combined. Transfer to a serving dish and served with steamed rice.

Your dishes always are presented, and look so delicious! I actually was think of making myself a Basil Beef salad tonight for dinner, and now I know I must, or I will be thinking of this dish all night! No chicken in the house though :)

Sounds so tasty! I've never heard of maggi sauce... very interesting!

Reeni♥ 19/7/09 03:51

This looks like a dish I would absolutely love! I have everything except the Maggi sauce? I'm not sure what that is or what I could substitute for it.

Angie's Recipes 19/7/09 06:20

@Reeni, Christina
Maggi is a Nestlé brand of sauces, ketchups, seasonings, etc. etc. .
It is a sauce which is very similar to light soya sauce (dark soya sauce is more for browning) without actually containing soya, and it tastes slighter sweeter.
Here is the USA home page: Maggi Seasoning
