The ground chicken filling has seasonings similar to those in larb, a popular Thai appetizer. Add sticky rice and sautéed fresh snow peas with chopped red bell pepper to complete the meal. Squeeze a lime wedge over the chicken for extra zip.
1 cup water
3/4 cup vertically sliced red onion
1 pound ground chicken breast
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
4 teaspoons Thai fish sauce
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
16 napa (Chinese) cabbage leaves (about 1 head)
Lime wedges (optional)
How to Make It
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add first 3 ingredients to pan. Cook 5 minutes or until chicken is done, stirring to crumble. Drain. Return chicken mixture to pan; stir in mint, cilantro, juice, fish sauce, and pepper.
Spoon about 3 tablespoons chicken mixture onto each cabbage leaf. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
