1 (3-inch) fresh green chile
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
5 cups no-salt-added chicken broth
2 cups thinly sliced, peeled daikon radish (about 1/2 pound)
1 pound skinned, boned chicken breasts, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/8 teaspoon sugar
2 cups hot cooked long-grain rice
Chopped fresh cilantro (optional)


Remove stem from chile; cut chile in half lengthwise, and discard seeds. Combine chile and vinegar in a blender, and process until smooth; set aside.

Bring broth to a simmer in a large saucepan; add radish, and cook 5 minutes. Add chile mixture, chicken, and next 3 ingredients; simmer 5 minutes or until chicken is done. Stir in rice; garnish with cilantro, if desired.
