Chicken 9 Lives Recipe


Try this chicken 9 lives with egg fried rice or with garlic fried rice. You will love the oyster sauce taste with chunky veggies.  This recipe is from Thai Cuisine. I think its called 9 lives because of 9 vegetables used in it. I skipped corn and broccoli in it.  You can also add baby corn, green chilies, and green beans in it.
