- Slice each chicken breast in half horizontally so you have 4 pieces. Slice each piece into very thin strips crosswise. Place in a medium bowl. Stir in fish sauce, sugar, chili-garlic sauce and cornstarch. Stir well to coat.
- Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high. Add oil, then chicken. Cook until chicken is golden, about 5 min. Add vegetables. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender-crisp and hot, 3 to 4 more min. Remove from heat. Stir in basil leaves and stems just before serving.
The key to this fast stir-fry is slicing the chicken very thinly — almost paper thin.
