Omg. Dinner was AMAZING. This was seriously restaurant quality food. My dad even told me that it was the best meal I've made so far---and I've made some pretty good ones. And it was so easy too!

Good Housekeeping Light and Healthy Recipes
Prep: 20 min. Cook: 10 Minutes Serves 4

2 tsp olive oil 2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 Tbs brown sugar
1 lg onion cut into 1/4 in slices 1.5 cups fresh basil leaves
1. Cut chicken into 1/4 in slices. In bowl combine fish sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar; add chicken slices, tossing to coat. Marinate 5 min.
2. In 12-in nonstick skillet, heat oil over med-high heath until very hot. Add chicken with marinade, stirring frequently 3-4 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon, set aside.
3. Add onions and stir fry 4 minutes. Stir in chiles, ginger, garlic for 1 minute more.
4. Return chicken to skillet, heat through. Stir in basil leaves
*I also cooked brown rice and stirred it in at the end.
So delicious and filling. On a 1-5 scale, I would definitely give this a 5.
After dinner we watched "The Last King of Scotland" which I would also give a 5. It was amazing---Forest Whitaker is SUCH a good actor!
