Heat ½ Tbsp. of vegetable oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, stirring, until just cooked through.
Add chili, onion, garlic, fish sauce, chili paste and soy sauce to the pan. Cook stirring constantly, until onions begin to soften and liquids thicken slightly, 3-4 minutes.
Add red pepper and basil leaves, cooking until basil leaves wilt slightly, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
This recipe serves just one, but can be easily doubled.
