Ingredients
For the Marinade
For the Stir Fry
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. In a mixing bowl, add the Marinade ingredients.
  2. Mix together with your hands, let the chicken marinate for 15-30 minutes.
  3. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the onion and peppers. I only had one bell pepper so I sliced up some Shiitake mushrooms.
  4. In another bowl, whisk together the oyster sauce, light soy sauce, water, black pepper, and 1 tablespoon of the cornstarch. Set this aside.
  5. After the chicken has marinated, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Use a spoon and mix together to coat the chicken all over.
  6. Heat a large non stick pan with 2 tablespoons of oil, on medium high heat. Add the chicken.
  7. Stir fry for about 5 minutes, then remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  8. Add the last tablespoon oil and when hot, add the onions and peppers, stir fry for a few minutes and the colors will brighten. Add the ginger and garlic and stir fry for another minute.
  9. Return the chicken to the pan, give the sauce another quick whisk then stir that into the pan. Stir fry to coat the chicken well and the sauce thickens. Remove from heat.
  10. Serve with rice or vegetables of your choice on the side.
Recipe Notes

Chicken breasts cost 66 Baht/kilo, 4 breasts should be about a kilo. For 4 servings, this is about 50 cents per serving.

Variants: 1. Use one color of bell pepper, or use a yellow bell pepper in place of a red or green pepper. 2. Add broccoli. 3. Add mushrooms, Straw, Oyster, or Shiitake would work well in this.

Now I am not a fan of adobo, in the Navy, on the 4 ships I served on, adobo was on the menu every week, sometimes twice a week, and sometimes twice a day. This is the first adobo recipe on my site, and I will try this as well, as it has been many years since I have eaten adobo. Edited on 9 May 2018 to include peppercorns and bay leaves. I made this on 9 May 2018, and I was pleasantly surprised, very delicious.

Instructions
  1. Add the soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, onion, peppercorns, and bay leaves to your slow cooker.
  2. Slice the chicken into 1 to 1 1/2 inch pieces, add to the slow cooker and mix to coat all the chicken. (This photo shows I used the Variant and went with skinless, bone in, fat trimmed whole thighs.)
  3. Cover and turn on your slow cooker to the Low setting for 5 to 6 hours. Check for tenderness and doneness at the 5 hour mark.
  4. To thicken the sauce slightly, 30 minutes before serving, set the slow cooker to the High setting, stir, and leave the cover tilted to allow some of the liquid to evaporate.
  5. Remove the bay leaves, serve with rice.
Recipe Notes

Figure about 60 Baht for the chicken. For 6 servings, this is about 30 cents per serving.

Variant: 1. Use whole bone in, skinless, fat trimmed, thighs in place of boneless thighs.

Yep, sounds pretty boring, but this is actually quite good. This is one of the first meals I had in Thailand when I visited here my first time in 1986. This is a popular lunch dish served everywhere in Thailand, and it is inexpensive, commonly selling for 30-40 Baht a serving. There is more to this than the name implies.

For the Sauce
Servings: servings
Instructions
  1. Rinse the rice as is normally done then add the rice to your rice cooker. Set the rice cooker aside.
  2. Trim excess skin from the chicken and cut the trimmings into small pieces. Place the skin trimmings in a nonstick pan on medium heat.
  3. Stir often until the oil releases from the skin, cook until the skin is golden brown and crispy. Remove the skin from the pan and discard or as a treat for your dog, leaving the oil created in the pan, and add the garlic.
  4. When the garlic is lightly browned, pour the garlic and the oil into the rice cooker. Sprinkle the salt over the rice and add the sliced ginger. We'll get back to the rice cooker in about 20 minutes.
  5. In a large pot add 5 cups of water and the chicken thighs, bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and simmer, while it is simmering, any of the fat from the chicken, spoon that off and put into the rice cooker. Simmer for about 10-20 minutes, continuing to spoon the fat into the rice cooker. You are making broth and flavoring the rice.
  6. After about 20 minutes, measure out 3 cups of broth and pour that into the rice cooker, stir the rice well and now you can proceed to cook the rice as usual.
  7. Add 2 more cups of water to the pot with the chicken and continue to simmer for about 45 minutes.
  8. While the chicken is simmering, time to make the sauce. Place all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Set that aside.
  9. Peel the cucumber and cut into 1/4 inch thick slices. Chop the cilantro.
  10. When the chicken and rice are both done, remove the chicken from the broth and pull out the bone from each thigh. For each serving, scoop some rice on a plate. Take a chicken thigh and slice into about 1/2 inch thick slices, use the edge of the knife and your hand and pick that up and place on rice. set some cucumber slices on the side of the rice and a small dish of the sauce. Spoon some broth into a bowl and sprinkle some cilantro onto the broth that is the side dish. Enjoy.
Recipe Notes

The chicken might cost 60 Baht. For 4 servings, this is about 45 cents per serving.
