One Pot Thai Basil Chicken

The perfect meal for busy nights. This one post meal is better than take out and ready to eat in 20 minutes.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4


  • 2 lbs. chicken thighs cut in 1 in. cubes
  • 4 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 2 medium onions sliced
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 3 Tbsp. Sriracha
  • 1 Tbsp. chili garlic sauce
  • 2 bell peppers sliced red and yellow
  • 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 6 tsp. brown sugar
  • 1 cup fresh whole Thai basil leaves


  • 1) Heat oil on high heat in a skillet. Saute onions and garlic in Sriracha and chili garlic sauce.
  • 2) Add chicken to skillet. Cook uncovered until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Covering the skillet will result in a water sauce.
  • 3) Mix in sliced bell peppers, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Reduce heat to medium low. Simmer for about 5 minutes until sugar is completely dissolved.
  • 4) Stir in basil. Toss for about 10 seconds then remove from heat. The basil will get bitter if it cooks for too long. Let cool about 5 minutes. Sauce will thicken a little more, and basil flavor will increase without getting bitter. Serve over rice or with noodles.
