If you like Thai food, you must try this quick and easy Thai Garlic Chicken. You can have it on the table in 20 minutes. This Thai Garlic Chicken is salty, sweet with some crispy garlic. Serve it with quinoa or some rice with fried eggs. Mmmmm… it’s so comforting. It reminds of of my childhood memories, walking to the local hole in a wall restaurants to get lunch with my Thai peeps during those college days in Bangkok. I went to Thammasat University, located next to a river. There are hundreds of good local restaurants along both sides of the river. I didn’t realized how spoiled we were until I left Bangkok! It’s a true food paradise and I miss it very much. One of our all time favorite place is called “Khun Ek” or “Mr. Ek” in English. They have the best garlic chicken and I always ordered it with a fried sunny side up egg and steamed rice. It’s so simple and yet so good. I tried and tried to mimic his recipe. I think I get it pretty close and I’d love to show you how I made it.

Back to Thai Garlic Chicken. The no longer ‘secret ingredient’ is the concoction of the sauce. It consists of sugar, fish sauce, sweet soy sauce, Golden Mountain seasoning sauce and oyster sauce. You can find all them from your local Asian store. When these 5 musketeers get together, it creates a unique salty, sweet and a little bit sticky yummy sauce….
