How to make it

  • Chop chicken well into slightly smaller than bite-size pieces
  • Chop all veggies/leaves
  • Heat a skillet and cook chicken in a little water - no oil - stirring constantly. If you are a fan of fish sauce, feel free to add a couple of squirts to chicken now as well.
  • Set aside to cool
  • In a bowl, combine chicken, lemongrass, lime leaves, chili peppers, lime juice, and fish sauce. Mix well.
  • Stir in all the rest.
  • Serve chilled or at room temperature. (optional: serve over lettuce as a salad. I prefer just to eat it straight.)
  • Notes: Depending on the kind of peppers you use and the amount of seeds you include, this dish can get spicy fast. I recommend using only one or two to start.
  • Also, I have made this without the lime leaves and ground chili peppers on many occasions, it is still just as good!
  • I usually double this recipe since it is easy to save for later since you can eat it cold...yum!

    I love the Larb Gai at my local restaurant and am psyched to find a recipe that someone recommends! Can't wait to try it.
