I was addicted to Larp (aka laab) from our local Thai take out restaurant, but sadly the restaurant closed. I can say that this recipe is as good as, if not better than, the Larp from the take out place. I used ground chicken and omitted the water chestnuts. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. Husband loved it. The heat builds when using the serrano peppers. If you don't like the heat, I would recommend using jalapeno peppers.

We really enjoyed this recipe. We used 1T fish sauce and 1T soy sauce because my husband really doesn't like a strong flavor of fish sauce. My picky daughter liked it too since it was mild, but full of flavor. We added siracha sauce to ours instead of serranos. We will absolutely be making this again.

This is our very favorite chicken lettuce wrap recipe. Have tried many others, but the way the flavors meld together, but still sing out solo themselves, is perfection. Yummy!!

These are great. I substituted half soy half seasoned rice wine vinegar for the fish sauce. Really good, even the picky eaters in my house loved them. Great cold as well!
