    Thai style chicken thingamajig

    Let's do Thai style chicken thingamajig.
    Chop up some boneless skinless chicken thighs. Then run them through a food processor.

    Now get about 2 tablespoons of coconut cream. I rarely use coconut milk, I prefer the cream. Trader Joe's makes great coconut cream.
    Add that to a large bowl, add some fish sauce, cumin, Thai red curry paste, lemongrass paste, finely diced red bell peppers, grated garlic, grated ginger and cilantro.

    Mix that mess

    Add the Chicken and season with salt, mix well.

    Here you can cover and let it firm up in the refrigerator.
    Then form patties.

    Fry em up
    I used a mini skillet

    You can go low carb with julienned carrots and cucumbers.

    With peanut sauce

    Or make a sammich.

    If you make this for adults only, mix in some Sriracha with the Chicken.

    Pretty cool, need to give those a try. What setting did you use on the food processor?


      _John_ I used my hand held blend, just pulse.


        Ernest, did you make your own peanut sauce? If so, do you have a recipe? By the way, this looks delicious!!


          Ray thank you! Yes I made my own peanut sauce. All ingredient amounts are eye balled. Taste and adjust:
          • a cup of coconut cream ( I prefer cream over coconut milk). Trader Joe's has great coconut cream.
          • 1/3 cup peanut butter. You can use chunky but make sure the peanut butter ingredients is peanuts ONLY
          • 1/3 cup sugar
          • A tablespoon regular white vinegar.
          • About 2 teaspoons kosher salt
          • About a 1/4 cup water
          • Some Asian hot sauce, I go with Gochujang (Korean) or Sriracha.
          Dump all that in a sauce pan and bring to a very gentle simmer for about 5 minutes. Cool taste and adjust seasoning, serve or store in refrigerator for weeks.

            NICE!! Goes really well with salmon or grilled shrimp.

          Ernest, You are my hero.

          ETA, can you give approximations on the ingredients in the chicken cakes? I understand you don't measure, but those are hard to eyeball. It looks like 6 thighs, 1/2 a red pepper, 1 T of the thai chile paste and lemongrass paste, and the same of the fish sauce, maybe 1 t of the cumin, 2 cloves garlic, an equal amount of ginger, and 1/4 of a handful of cilantro?

            See Mosca your eyeballing skills are just fine!! You missed the red pepper, used less than half. More like 2 tablespoons worth after dicing. And I'd say close to 2 tablespoons of Thai red curry paste.


              "Ernest can't cook Thai"

              "Oh no, Ernest can cook Thai, Ernest cook Thai VERY WELL!


                LOL!! Jerod Broussard I was reading that normally then switched to reading in Thai accent.
