Larb Chicken Cups

Also known as Larb Gai.

Easy to make, fucking delicious, and relatively “healthy” to booth.
This recipe isn’t particularly authentic, but it gets you 95% of the way there in 15 minutes or less.

Serves 2-4.

Double recipe if required, leftovers are delicious when cold.

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 garlic cloves (thinly sliced)
  • 500g chicken mince
  • Sauce:
    • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
    • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
    • 2 limes, juiced
    • 1/4 cup of sweet chilli sauce
  • Veggie Bowl (mix these together before cooking):
    • 1-2 red chilies (thinly sliced) or 2 tablespoons of fresh chilli paste.
    • 3 spring onions (thinly sliced)
    • 1/4 cup coriander (roughly chopped) – optional.
    • 1/2 cup fresh mint (roughly chopped)
    • 1 large white onion (thinly sliced)

  1. Heat your wok over high heat and add 2 tablespoons of oil, add the ground chicken. 
  2. Stir-fry until the chicken is browned and crispy, and add in your sauce.

  3. Stir-fry for another minute, then add your veggie bowl.
  4. Stir-fry for one more minute, and then taste for seasoning – ie, add salt or more chili, sugar, fish sauce, and/or lime juice to your taste if needed.
