Recipe type: main
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 8 fresh jalapenos seeded and minced. If you want more spicy, leave the seeds in half the jalapenos.
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 6 small chicken thighs
  • 2 cups finely shredded Napa Cabbage
  1. Directions:
  2. In a large skillet or dutch oven, heat the oil over moderate heat until shimmering. Add the jalapenos and sauté, stirring for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the coconut milk, increase the heat to high and boil until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to moderate. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through, about 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in the fish sauce, basil and cilantro.
  4. Serve over a bed of the cabbage on a large platter, cover with the sauce.
