Every guy gets bored of grilled and baked chicken. Eating clean can be tedious-at least until you master the stir-fry, the simplest, quickest way to make a healthy, tasty dish that all gets cooked at once. This meal has lean protein, clean carbs, and healthy fats, but taste like your favorite Thai takeout. Best of all it’s hard to screw up. 

Stir-Fried Thai Basil Chicken Recipe Servings: 1
You'll need
  • ½ cup Uncooked jasmine rice
  • 2 tsp Canola oil
  • 8 oz Chicken breast, sliced into thin strips
  • 1½ tsp Salt and pepper to tastet
  • ½ tsp Ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 5 Basil leaves, torn
  • 1 Thai chili, chopped

Quick Tip: Choose white rice over brown. Brown rice contains mineral-blocking phytic acid and may be harder to digest.

1. Boil water and add the rice to it.
2. Place a sauté pan over medium heat, pour the oil in, and once it’s hot, put the chicken in the pan and season with salt and pepper.
3. Cook for 1 minute, then add soy sauce, basil, and Thai chili. Mix well.
4. Cook (while rice is boiling) for 12–15 minutes. When rice is done, add to pan, mix together, and serve hot.
