This is a quick and easy meal and you can make it as spicy as you wish. This is written exactly how I just seen my seen my wife make this. Most Thais do not use a recipe and even more rare is measuring anything. Serve over rice and you have a easy lunch or dinner.

  2. Pinch off the stem end if you wish and place chilis in a mortar, light smash the chilis just a few times, you are NOT making chili paste, just light smashed chilis.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan to medium heat and add the chicken pieces, chilis, garlic, pinch of salt to taste, pinch of chicken stock powder. Add a bit of water, maybe 2 tablespoons, and stir everything together and let it simmer until chicken is cooked through, maybe 10 minutes, most of the water should be cook off at this point.
  4. Add the basil and stir together, cook for about 2-3 minutes until the basil is good and wilted. Serve over rice.
Recipe Notes

Chicken wing drumets (also called chicken wing sticks) runs about 80 Baht/kilo, this dish would cost about 40 Baht, well under $1 per person per meal, easily 4 meals.

The basil and chilis come fresh from our yard.

  1. We eat a lot wings at our house and this sounds like a nice change from our usual Buffalo style or BBQ sauced up wings. I totally agree about how Thais cook and prepare food…Recipe what is that?….Our Thai kitchen never seen measuring spoons before I arrived, if I never used them, they would never be used…But Thais understand how foods should taste and continually test for taste.
