Peel the onion and slice finely. Crush, peel and finely chop the garlic. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Cut the centre vein from the kaffir lime leaves then shred the leaves very finely.

2. Heat the wok

3. Stir fry the chicken

Add chicken and stir fry for 1 – 2 minutes or until coloured. Add the chilli, lime leaves, soy and fish sauces and stir fry for about 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked.

4. Add basil and enjoy

Add the basil and stir fry until the basil is just starting to wilt. Serve immediately with rice or noodles.
