Core Gai Kratiam - Chicken with Garlic and Pepper - Thai Cooking School (Core +1pt)

I learnt this authentic Thai recipe at Thai cooking school in Patong, Phuket in January

The accompaniments in the photo are chilli sauce and rice vinegar with cucumber, chilli and shallots

Serves: 1

Difficulty: Easy

  • 80g chicken breast, sliced
  • 2 tsp chopped garlic (don't use garlic in a jar for this one, you need real garlic)
  • 1 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce
  • * 1 teaspoon brown sugar or palm sugar (*1pt)
  • 4 pinches of ground white pepper (black pepper looks like burnt flecks)
  • 1 TB vegetable oil


In a bowl, add together all of the ingredients except the oil and allow to sit for 10 mins.
Turn on fry pan or wok to LOW heat and add the oil.
Fry the chicken mix until the chicken is cooked.

Not on Core? The total Points for this recipe is 3.5pts
If serving with rice, don't forget to add the points for rice - 1/2 cup cooked rice is 1.5 pts

On Core, allow 1 pt for the sugar.
