Author Notes

Ground chicken is quickly sautéed in a very hot skillet with a trifecta of diced poblano chili, Fresno chili, & fresh garlic. Sambal chili paste, soy sauce, oyster sauce, and a dash of fish sauce complete a fragrant Thai dish! Throw in a handful of beautifully green basil right at the end, and scoop this spicy mix on top of some soft steamed rice.
