Larb - Thai Chicken Salad



Whenever I eat Thai in a restaurant, I always like to try their version of "Larb".  Don't be scared by the name.  It's simply ground chicken wok fried with fresh veggies, ginger, garlic, and lime.  You can typically find it on the menu under the "SALAD" section. 

Here's MY version: 

 
DeeLee's Larb 

1 lb. ground chicken 
1 2 inch piece of fresh ginger
4 garlic cloves
1 bunch of fresh mint
3 limes 
1 bell pepper
1 red onion 
1 carrot 
1 tbsp. Asian vinegar 
1 tbsp. Fish Sauce
1 tbsp. sesame oil 
2 tbsp. canola oil/ Coconut Oil
1 cup peanuts 

Cut all of your veggies, garlic, and herbs and get everything ready to go. Once you chop, this recipe comes together in less than 10 minutes.  

In a wok, brown the chicken in coconut oil or canola oil on medium/ high heat.  

Add the ginger then the carrot.  Then add the bell pepper, red onion, and garlic.   Add the chicken and remove from heat.  You want some crunch left in the veggies.  

Add fresh lime juice, Asian vinegar, fish sauce, sesame oil and stir well.  add the peanuts and the fresh mint.  

 
Serve with a side of cabbage that has been quartered.  You are going to roll these up like tacos and eat em'!  I love to put Asian hot sauce like Sambol Oelek on them and make em' super hot!  YUM!
