I started eating chicken larb a couple of years ago, and now I wonder why it took me so long to discover this delicious dish. Larb is a Thai/Laotian dish made with ground meat, often chicken, cooked with a mixture of onion and chilis and tossed with a spicy sauce, topped with fresh cilantro and mint, and served on lettuce leaves.
There's so much flavor going on in a good larb. I love healthy, light dishes that taste amazing! Since the bulk of the dish is in the ground chicken, the high protein content is very filling.
There's a Laotian and a Thai restaurant in town and I've ordered chicken larb from both of them, but I always thought that it was something I could never recreate successfully at home. Boy, was I wrong. This recipe is so simple yet every bit as good as the larb dishes I've had in restaurants.
Even if you're unfamiliar with this dish, I encourage you to give it a try. Chicken larb is a wonderful, light, and easy dinner idea. Enjoy!Print
