garlic-chili chicken

I learned this recipe from Food Safari. This is the 2nd time hubby will be having this for his baon. It's actually called "basil chicken" but I forgot all about the basil! This is super spicy and alomst lethal but really good -- you'll just have to follow each spoonful with a glass of water or better yet, a shot of coke. you may also have it this with more chilies on the side --- just don't get surprised if you suddenly breathe fire!

1 tsp cooking oil
2-3 red chilies
2-3 garlic cloves
1/4 ginger root
chicken breast fillets, cut into strips
red bell pepper, cut into strips
spring onion

Using a mortar and pestle, crush chilies, garlic, ginger and spices together to form a paste.
Heat oil in pan, add chili-garlic-ginger paste
drop in chicken strips, stirring constantly. Add water as needed. Season with salt. When chicken is cooked, turn off heat and add bell peppers and spring onions.
