Thais love hotdogs, they have as many brands of hotdogs as they do brands of canned fish and rice. Now 90% of the Thai hotdogs are pure rubbish, but there is a few very good brands out there. Hotdogs are nothing more than sausages, however with modern processing and the poor choices of fillers and casings, the consistency in taste is quite lacking. For those in Thailand and the rest of the world, use good quality beef or chicken hotdogs. This is a typical side/snack served with beer in the evening. Serve with rice for a complete meal.

Instructions
  1. I use my little rice cooker to do steaming, it came with a steamer basket and works perfect for items like this. Three chicken breasts was just a bit over 500 grams, perfect, no one will complain.
  2. Steam the chicken breasts for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through, cut one in half to check doneness.
  3. When cooked, remove from the steamer and allow to cool, then shred and place in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Heat the oil in a non stick pan on medium heat, when hot, add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Stir fry until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. To the pan, stir in the salt, oyster sauce, soy sauce, and cumin.
  6. Add the cilantro, reserving a small amount for garnish) to the chicken in the mixing bowl and toss to mix that in.
  7. I did use a variant and added one diced red onion.
  8. Add the garlic mixture from the pan and toss to mix well.
  9. Serve and garnish with cilantro or chill and serve with cilantro garnish.
Recipe Notes

The chicken breasts will cost about 30 Baht/500 grams. For 2 servings, this is about 47 cents per serving.

Shortcut: Pickled Red Onion.

Variants: 1. Add diced red onion. 2. Add diced celery. 3. Add diced pickled red onion, excellent!
