This is the Chicken Larb from Bangkok Chef. It's my favorite dish from there. You put a spoonful onto a cabbage leaf and eat it like a wrap. I've been known to get two orders of this, one for now and one for later.
The last time I was at Marukai, Wendell pointed out to me that they had some ground chicken. I picked up a couple of trays so that I could try and make my own Larb. I couldn't find an easy recipe to my liking, so I kinda made up my own by combining recipes I found online.
I soaked about 2 pounds of the ground chicken in 1/2 cup of lemon juice for 10 minutes. All the recipes I found said to use lime juice, but I had a bag of lemons that I had just bought from Costco, so I used the lemons instead. I threw the chicken into a skillet with about a fourth of a really white onion, sliced. I found the onion in the 'fridge and with my limited cooking expertise am not sure if this onion was different from regular onions but it was really white.
I added 5 tablespoons of fish sauce.
Then I added 2 spoonsful of chili paste to a bunch of basil leaves and a bunch of chopped green onions.
This is the chili paste that I used.
The resultant concoction ended up with a lot of liquid so I just turned up the heat and let most of the liquid evaporate. Guess what? It turned out really good!! Hahaha. In fact Leslie said she liked it better than Bangkok Chef's! I forgot to buy cabbage so we ate it with some multigrain tortilla chips instead.
