Delicious and easy homemade takeout in under 20 minutes, this Basil Thai Chicken With Zoodles will be your new favorite dish. Full of flavor and easily adaptable to any dietary needs.
Place a frying pan or wok over medium heat. Preheat for five minutes.
Cook the ground chicken through; remove from the pan and set aside.
Add garlic, ginger, carrots, soy sauce, red pepper flakes, and chicken stock to the pan and cook until the carrots are crisp-tender - about 3 minutes. Add the chicken back to the pan.
Add basil. remove from heat and allow to sit for 2 minutes. Serve immediately over rice, cauliflower rice, or zoodles (zucchini noodles).
Make sure your rice is cooked and ready to go before you start cooking the meat.
Thai Basil Chicken is a meal prep dream. It reheats so nicely and tastes even better the next day!
To break up the ground chicken into a really fine "mince" I like to cook it until most of the pink is gone. I then take a pastry cutter and chop the meat into teeny pieces.
