5 from 14 reviews


  • 1 thumb size ginger (peeled and minced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3 stalks scallions (finely chopped)
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha sauce
  • handful cilantro (chopped)
  • 2 limes (cut into wedges)


  1. In a medium size pan, heat the oil and add garlic, ginger and onions. Cook until onions are clear (about 4 minutes).
  2. Add ground chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes, until chicken is halfway cooked. Add sugar, fish sauce, water, soy sauce and sriracha, stir and continue cooking until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Turn the heat off and add the scallions and cilantro.
  4. Serve with lime wedges and a side of rice.


Squeezing a little lime helps cut through the saltiness and adds a refreshing pop to the Thai ground chicken.
