Ingredients
  1. 4 organic boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut across the grain into thin strips
  2. 8 green onions, ends removed and cut into 2 inch lengths
  3. 1 red bell pepper, sliced 1/4 inch wide (seeds and core removed)
  4. 2 cups loosely packed basil leaves
  5. 1 jalapeño, sliced in half lengthwise and remove seeds, then slice thinly
  6. 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  7. 1/2 cup chicken broth
  8. 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  9. 3 tbsp. red boat fish sauce
  10. 1 tsp. arrowroot starch
  11. 2 tbsp. olive
  12. kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the broth, fish sauce, and lime juice. Add the arrowroot starch and whisk until dissolved. Set aside.
  2. Warm a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat and add the oil. Add the bell pepper and stir–fry for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the jalapeño and the strips of chicken, seasoning with salt and pepper right after you add, and stir-fry until the chicken loses its pink color, about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Add the green onions and the garlic and stir-fry for 2 more minutes.
  5. Whisk the sauce once more and pour it into the pan. Bring liquid to a boil and let simmer until it reduces by half, about 3 more minutes.
  6. Stir in the basil and cook until it is just wilted.
  7. Serve immediately.
