Thai Chicken with Mushrooms, Green Beans and Basil

  • FAST
  1. 1 1/2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  2. 1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce
  3. 1 teaspoon sugar
  4. 2 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  5. 1/2 pound green beans, cut into 2-inch lengths
  6. 3 scallions, white and light green parts only, cut into 1-inch lengths
  7. 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. 3/4 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast cutlets, pounded thin and cut into strips
  10. 1/4 pound small mushrooms, stemmed and quartered
  11. 1/2 cup drained canned baby corn, cut into 1-inch lengths
  12. 2 large jalapeños—halved, seeded and thickly sliced lengthwise
  13. 1 cup torn basil leaves
  1. In a small bowl, mix the oyster sauce with the fish sauce and sugar.
  2. In a wok, heat 1/2 tablespoon of the oil over high heat. Add the beans and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the wok and heat until smoking. Add the scallions, garlic and salt and stir-fry until the garlic is lightly golden, about 45 seconds. Add the chicken in 3 batches, waiting a few seconds between additions, and stir-fry until it barely turns white, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms, corn, jalapeños and green beans and stir-fry until the vegetables are crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the oyster sauce mixture and stir-fry until the chicken is cooked through, about 2 minutes longer. Stir in the basil, transfer to a platter and serve.
