Pad Prik Sai Gai - Spicy Vegetable With Chicken
Saturday, 05 December 2009 10:09

A Conan modified Thai recipe. After living in Thailand for five years I can now amaze the locals by cooking up a couple of decent Thai dishes. This is one of them.

When you eat chicken and rice 3 times a day for 20 years any new, interesting ways to eat it are welcome. This recipe, like everything else I do is easy to make and prepare and is a tasty new way to eat that old boring steamed rice and chicken dish.

This is a mildly spicy 'freid' vegetables and chicken dish, the chicken can easily be substituted for another meat as the other common occurance of this dish in Thailand is Pad Prik Sai Moo (with pork).


200 - 300 Grams Chicken Breast (1/2 lb) (or use pork)
Banana Peppers, also called Paprika (use the vegetable, not the powder)
Garlic (I use pre-cooked)
Chicken Stock Powder
Soy Sauce
Oyster Sauce
Chillies (small hot - optional)
Boiled Rice


Dice Chicken (skin on or off depending upon your current dietary goals). Add chicken to the pan, add about 1/3 of a cup of water as we'll be cooking in water rather than oil. Turn pan heat on. Put the pan lid on.

Dice the onion (and optional chillies) and add it to the pan.

Slice the Banana Peppers and add them to the pan.

Add garlic to taste, stir all the ingredients together in the pan.

Slice cabbage finely and add to the pan, stir again.

Add soy sauce and oyster sauce and stock powder (you can see I substituted pork flavour as I had run out of chicken flavour). Aloow to cook through for about 5 minutes.

Serve over rice and eat.
