Larb Gai (Thai Style Cold Chicken Salad)


Two, 8 oz chicken breasts, grilled or poaches, minced into small pieces

2 Tbsp scallions, sliced thin

2 Tbsp basil, chopped rough

4 Tbsp cilantro, stemmed, chopped rough

3 Tbsp The Spice Hunter Coriander Lime Global Fusion Rub

*** 2 Tbsp toasted, ground rice

Juice of 2 limes

4 Tbsp cold water


*** Chef’s Note on toasted, ground rice: In small, dry saute pan, add 2 Tbsp. raw long grain rice over medium heat. Toss well until golden brown and popping, (roughly 5 minutes), then remove and cool. Grind coarsely in clean spice or coffee grinder.



In a clean stainless steel bowl, combine all ingredients. Fold gently until well-combined.

Allow salad to sit refrigerated for no less than ½ hour.

Serve salad cold.

Additional serving suggestions: Serve chicken mixture plain, over a bed of romaine lettuce, or in green lettuce leaves as a wrap.
