Thai Chicken Wrapped in Lettuce (Laab)




  1. Heat a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken and water. Cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up large pieces, until chicken has turned completely white, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat; drain chicken.
  2. Combine chicken, green onions, shallots, mint, cilantro, fish sauce, ground rice, chile flakes and lime juice in a serving bowl; toss well.
  3. Place lettuce on a plate. Let diners prepare their own wraps by placing a spoonful of chicken on a lettuce leaf and rolling it up.
  4. * To make ground rice, heat a small, heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
  5. Add 1/4 cup rice (jasmine or sticky rice is best, but use whatever you have on hand); stir constantly until the rice turns golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat; let cool.
  7. Grind in a coffee mill or spice grinder. You will have some left over for another time.
