  1. In a skillet, mix the chicken and red pepper flakes and cook over medium heat (do not add oil).
  2. Add the fish sauce and mix thoroughly.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the cilantro, shallots, and lime juice.
  4. Once chicken has cooked, add to the bowl.
  5. Stir in Yai's Thai Ginger Lime Hot Sauce to taste.

  • Note: you'll often see this dish spelled "larb gai" or "laab gai." There's no single agreed-upon way to spell Thai words, but we think this spelling gives you the best sense of how you should pronounce it.
