Jules's Blurb: Thai Chicken Stir Fry, (Gai Sieuw) gets a special 3 part cooking treatment making this the most tender and tasty chicken stir fry with a lovely rich golden brown colour, a hint of spice underlies the savoury, sweet and succulent chicken with garlic all balanced to perfection by the addition of crunchy spring onions as a finisher. A great recipe for chicken thighs!
The trick with this recipe as with most chicken stir fry recipes (and any Thai stir fry recipe for that matter) is timing! Plus the special ingredient that sets it off a treat is sweet dark soy sauce and again, as with chillies, too many cooks over do it and ruin this delightful dish.

Because of its sweet and savoury flavours it is often served with curries and spicy dishes in general. As part of a main meal it would be served in a central bowl for all to share. Try our Pork Red Curry Recipe or maybe something rich and spicy like Dry Chicken Red Curry Recipe (it's not dry like the name implies, it means no oil or milk is used in cooking) or perhaps a Ginger Chicken Stir Fry
