Bring Thai-inspired street food vibes to your kitchen. Known in Thailand as Pad Kra Pao Gai, this dish is savoury, sweet, and mildly spicy. Even if you’re not a fan of fish sauce, add a few splashes to the dish at the end of cooking: it adds more depth and an irresistible, umami flavour! For an even more authentic Thai experience, serve the prepared dish with steamed rice and a fried egg.

2 tbsp
oil
1 lb (450 g)
