1-2 tablespoons coconut oil, avocado oil (or any other oil with a higher smoke point)

2 Thai bird chilies, thinly sliced on a bias

2-3 shallots, thinly sliced

5 cloves garlic, sliced

1 teaspoon ginger, grated

1 pound ground turkey or chicken

2 teaspoons sugar

2 tablespoons soy sauce or coconut aminos

½ - 1 tablespoon fish sauce

⅓ cup water

2 bunches Thai basil leaves

DIRECTIONS

In a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil, chilies, shallots, garlic, and ginger. Stir fry until slightly golden, about 1 minute.

Add ground turkey, stir fry for 3 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to break up the turkey into small pieces.

Add sugar, coconut aminos, fish sauce. Continue to stir fry for an additional 2-3 minutes until sauce is almost fully evaporated. Add water and stir fry an additional 1-2 minutes until turkey is cooked through and the pan is deglazed.
