So few ingredients and yet so good. Don’t skip on the roasted rice powder or the thai chili ( both available at Amazon ). You’ll never order lettuce wraps at PF Chang’s again.
- 16 oz ground turkey or chicken
- 2 tbsp roasted rice powder
- 1/2 tsp hot thai chili powder
- 4 tsp fish sauce ( Red Boat, if possible )
- 5 tsp lime juice
- 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
- 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
- 2 tbsp chopped scallions
- 10 mint leaves
- Lettuce leaves
Directions ( super easy )
In a skillet over high heat, pour in 2 tablespoons of water and your ground chicken. Stir often. You are only cooking this chicken enough to get it *just* done. You aren’t browning it.
Next, in another large bowl, stir together everything else. Thing is about Thai food, is that a lot of it is mise en place, and this is no exception. After it’s well blended, stir in your chicken, serve on lettuce leaves!
Optionally, but this is good, add a discretionary amount of peanuts for textural contrast.
