Chicken Larp

by Chef Christine Inthachith & her mother Bounyoung

The Dressing



  1. In a bowl combine the fresh lime juice, rice coriander, fish sauce, and sugar.

The Chicken Larp



  1. Clean the chicken breast. Pat dry.
  2. In a pan add ½ tsp of vegetable oil, when the pan turns hot, pan sear the chicken breast until its fully cooked all the way. For a healthy option, grill the chicken with no oil.
  3. Let the chicken cool for a couple of minutes.
  4. Hand chop the chicken breast on a cutting board. Once the chicken is fully chopped. Pour the chicken into the bowl. (The traditional method is to hand chop. For a quick version you can buy ground meat).
  5. Add the green onions, sliced shallots, lemon grass, citrus leaves, fresh galangal, Thai chilies, cilantro & mint leaves.
  6. Give the larp a good mix, making sure all the spices and dressing coats the chicken.
  7. Taste test. See if it needs more fish sauce for saltiness, lime juice or more chili. Get it the way you want it.
  8. Dish it out onto a plate and garnish with more mint leaves, cilantro, scallions.
  9. Serve with leaf lettuce as a lettuce wrap, or serve with sticky rice the traditional way.
