The ingredients in this stir-fry are the sort of things you'd find in the Thai Jungle. Green peppercorns for spices, Doc Kae tree flowers for a bitter bite, various vegetables and wild chickens! Sadly, Thailand has very little jungle left today, and this is the closest many Thai will ever come to the jungle.

1. Clean and chop the chicken into 3 cm lengths, deep fry in hot oil until crunchy, then remove and drain.
