Confinement Recipe: Basil Chicken

Confinement Basil Chicken is my go-to dish when I feel like having some chicken drumsticks that are not fried.

Being partly Thai, I am only too happy to have some Thai basil with my meal.

300g chicken drumsticks, cut to pieces
20g fresh thai basil (do not use English sweet basil) - omit basil if not available
4pcs garlic cloves, sliced
5 pieces shallots, sliced
20g ginger, sliced
250ml chicken or vegetarian stock
50ml pure sesame oil

Saute chicken pieces in pure sesame oil with garlic, shallots and ginger until sealed.
Add stock and bring to boil.
Lower heat to simmer for 15 minutes.
Add torn fresh thai basil leaves as garnish.
Serve hot with rice.

*chicken may be replaced with beef slices after stitches have completely healed.
