Tip

The chilli paste I use is available from Asian Shops - Chilli Paste with Soya Bean Oil - Pantai Brand (see 2nd photo)

 

We like a lot of sauce to go with rice however if you like less then reduce the oyster sauce and light soy sauce accordingly

 

You can use sweet chill sauce for this recipe however it does change the flavour and will make it spicy compared to the chilli paste with soya bean oil

Also feel free to add vegetables to this dish.

    Amazing authentic Thai taste. I used sweet chilli sauce and added the chicken after the sauce cooked and the chicken still shredded a bit. A hit with the fussy husband. Will be our go to.

    The family (well 4 out of 5) loved it. Disapointed that the chicken shreaded, wish the notes included to use the butterfly up a little higher, still delish. Just not insta worthy hahah.
    Have added a note to use the butterfly next time.

    I made this according to the recipe except I used the Chill Jam and was really nice. The only thing was it tasted very salty. Has anyone reduced the soy sauce and still tasted ok.

    YUM. Made a slightly "cleaner" verson by substituting the soy with Tamari, used coconut sugar instead of raw sugar, Sriracha for the chilli sauce and added a long red chilli. I also used chicken thigh and some steamed veges all served on brown rice. Delish, will definitely make again.

    Submitted by Kelliehall79 on 12. August 2017 - 20:09.

    This recipe was amazing. I used chicken thigh. I cut it into 2cm chuncks and it stayed whole and tender in the TM. I added capsicum, carrot and tin baby corn with the 5 minute cook. I added the onion in at the same time as the garlic. I cut the sugar to 20 gms and only had sweet chilli sauce, so used it. With all these adjustments it was amazing, but I was working with what I had. I imagine it would be amazing if following the recipe exactly also. Thanks for this recipe. I can't wait till I get to cook it for others!!!

    Submitted by HelenaCC on 3. July 2017 - 19:56.

    Really tasty, but I was disappointed that the chicken shredded badly despite following the recipe. The texture of the chicken was like tinned tuna, so it was quite off putting. Next time I'll make sure I use the butterfly. I wanted to increase the veggie count, so I added red capsicum and snow peas with the onion. I couldn't find the suggested chilli paste, so used 1 heaped teaspoon of Ayam laksa paste. I'll definitely make it again, as the flavours are nice.

    It was a hit in our house. After reading the comments, I used the Ayam brand Thai chilli jam paste - only 2 tspn. It was delicious, a little sweet for my taste, so I'll reduce the sugar next time. But if everyone in the family enjoys it, it's a winner in my books. Definitely be making this again...

    I reduced Oyster to 80g - soy sauce to 45 - no sugar and subtituded the curry paste for sweet chilli sauce.
    Also added ginger with garlic at the start and sliced carrot, capsicum and mushrooms!

    Delish!

    Submitted by Jashyboo on 7. June 2017 - 19:40.

    [size= 12pt]Oh - my - god - this was amazing!!!! Definitely going on weekly rotation from here on in 👌👌👌

    It was pretty quick to whip up, I started the rice in rice cooker first then followed this recipe. Once finished I transferred the bowl contents to another dish and covered in foil. If I had a thermo server I would use that. Then I did NOT wash the bowl and just added apx 1L water then steamed brocolli and beans in the varoma for 15-18min on speed 4.

    I used chicken thigh, no butterfly, and ensured I had reverse and speed soft enabled each time. my chicken did not shred.

    I Couldn't find the exact chilli paste used however after reading far into the comment suggestions I used Ayam brand Thai chilli jam paste and it is definitely flavourful and mild, even my 4yo daughter who hates spicy food ate all of her dinner up and thanked me for it tmrc_emoticons.-D[/size]

    Awesome flavour!! I cut my chicken quite large and it still shredded. It was still lovely even with shredded chicken! Could try thigh next time to hopefully hold together better. So quickly and yummy I'll be using this for another fast weeknight meal!

    i added beans and slices for capsicum in step 5 and they were cooked beautifully!
