A great way to use lime mint in the kitchen. Growing up in America with a Thai mother, I used to watch her cook Thai food and loved the smells. I still use the same recipes but put my own little spin on them. If I get to use the fresh herbs from my garden, it's even better!
This recipe is super easy and great for a quick summer lunch or easy dinner on a summer evening! (*Leave out the Ground Roasted Rice Powder for a gluten free version)
Pulse the following ingredients in a food processor a few times until desired consistency. I prefer the consistency to make it easy to mix with steamed rice and eat with chopsticks or a spoon. Enjoy!
4 Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs (boiled or grilled) cut in 1-inch cubes
