Notes

  1. If you are feeding children, I recommend avoiding the red Thai Chilis. They can be quite spicy so go easy on them. You can always add more if needed.
  2. Do not add salt to the dish, remember oyster sauce, soy sauce, and fish sauce are high in sodium.
  3. The skillet needs to be hot before adding the oil, and the oil needs to be hot before adding the chicken.
