Thai minced chicken with basil

A very aromatic Thai style dish, made with minced chicken.

I saute some chopped ginger, garlic, chillies and Spring onions.
Add in the minced chicken, stir fry it until it changes colour to white, then add the sauce:

Palm sugar or brown sugar, one Tablespoon.
Oyster sauce, one Tablespoon.
Soy sauce, one tablespoon.
Fish sauce, one tablespoon.
half a cup of water or chicken stock.

Bring to boil.  The chicken will be done in a bit more than 5 minutes from this point.  When it's done, toss in a LOT of fresh basil leaves. I use about 15 leaves for the quantity of one chicken breast.
Squeeze the juice of half a lime into the whole mixture, and serve with Fresh cucumbers and crispy lettuce. And perhaps steamed rice if you wish.  Vermicelli (rice noodles), also go well with this.
