4 C (about one head) red/purple kale, julienned
1 1/2 lb chicken thighs, skinless and boneless, small chop
2 tsp oyster sauce
2 tsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp peanut oil (sesame oil is fine to use)
1 fresh jalapeno, sliced
4 cloves garlic, small chop
3 green onion, chopped
2 T julienne fresh basil
1 T fresh cilantro, chopped
garnish with basil leaves
2 Cups cooked jasmine or basmati rice, brown or white
(1/4 C uncooked rice is about 1 serving. When cooking rice, use a 2 water 1 rice ratio. For brown rice use a 3:1 ratio)
Mix chicken with oyster sauce, lime juice and soy sauce and let marinate for 5-10 minutes at least. Fry chicken in oil, until chicken is almost fully cooked. Add Add garlic, cook for 1 minutes, garlic should be tender. And jalapeno and kale, once kale gets bright purple, add fresh basil and cilantro. Mix well, turn off heat. Season with more fresh lime as desired.
