What You'll Need
  • For the Dressing
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon toasted rice powder, store-bought or homemade
  • 1 teaspoon roasted chile powder
  • For the Larb
  • 6 fried chicken tenders (about 12 ounces), sliced, or 3 heaping cups of chopped fried chicken
  • 1 medium shallot or 1/2 red onion, halved and thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup torn mint leaves
  • Cooked sticky rice or jasmine rice, for serving
  1. Make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, fish sauce, brown sugar, rice powder, and chile powder until combined. Set aside.
  2. Make the larb: Preheat the oven to 400°F. Spread the chicken on a sheet pan and bake until heated through, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the warm chicken, shallot, scallions, cilantro, and mint, then slowly pour the dressing over the top while tossing. Mix gently but thoroughly. Taste and adjust any seasonings as needed. The larb should be tangy, salty, and a little spicy (like me).
  4. Serve immediately with rice.

This was quick and easy to make. It's delicious. I like things "saucy" so I made extra dressing.
