In my home, I rarely cooked side dishes. My mother did a better job at that than I am. When my mother asked me to cook, I was thinking of cooking a side dishes to go with the white rice. I browsed through my recipe book, and found a recipe for stir fry chicken with chillies and Thai herbs. I substitute the chicken for fish fillet, though... The recipe is very easy and quick! My family said it tasted good too! I'm sure I'll be making them again sometimes :)
