Method

  1. Chop the chicken thighs into small pieces with a knife until they resemble coarse mince. Heat a wok over a high heat. When smoking hot, add the oil, chicken and shallot. Stir constantly and cook for about 5 mins until the chicken is cooked but not browned. Then stir in 1 tsp water, the dried chilli and fish sauce. Cook for 2 mins more. Remove from the heat, squeeze over the lime juice and leave to cool. Can be made up to 1 day ahead.
  2. To serve, mix the herbs into the chicken mixture. Separate the chicory into individual leaves (you’ll need about 20) and arrange on serving plates. Place 1-2 tbsp of the chicken mixture into each leaf and scatter over some extra chopped herbs and sliced fresh chillies.

Oops forgot to rate. Plus I used chicken breast not thighs and it turned out deliciously.

Absolutely gorgeous. I couldn't get chicory so used little gem lettuce leaves instead and worked brilliantly. Going to a party this weekend and will definitely be making them for that.

These were delicious, easy to make too, although I will try chicken breast next time as I'm so fussy about fat and stringy bits, therefore the thighs took ages to chop. Everyone at the party loved them and I had some great comments.

These were absolutely awsome! They went down a storm and I will definately do them again. The red raddichio or chicory is lovely with it as well.
