Thai Chicken Prik King

 

If you have never heard of Prik King your life is honestly lacking a bit. Make this easy recipe and be prepared to die a little bit from the tastiness! This is a super simple Thai recipe that hardly takes any time to whip up and only requires a few ingredients.

If you are a fan of curry, you need to try Prik King. If you are not a fan of curry, you need to try Prik King. Got it? Ok, thanks.

So, all you need for this recipe is chicken, garlic, green beans, lime leaves, and Prik King curry paste. That is only 5 ingredients! Plus the garlic barely even counts, because who doesn’t have garlic on hand already? Lime leaves can be kind of tricky to find. I have only been able to find them at an Asian market. If you find them, stock up on them and freeze them (they freeze super well)!

The 2 sauces you will need to make Prik King are mushroom soy sauce and fish sauce. If you can’t find these sauces and don’t have access to an Asian market, you can get them on Amazon. Here are the links to buy them! Mushroom soy sauce: Amazon Try not to sub this for regular soy sauce, it completely changes the taste of the dish.

Fish sauce: Amazon Any brand of fish sauce will do, this is just one of my favorites.

Here we go. First get all the prepping out of the way so the dish will be a breeze to whip up. Chop the beans in 1 inch pieces, mince the garlic (use only fresh garlic), and thinly slice the lime leaves. Grab a paper towel and dab all the chicken juice off, then cut the chicken into bite sized pieces.

Yes, I am aware a stray green bean fell into my lime leaves! Unfortunately I didn’t notice when I took the picture! Oh well.

Add oil and garlic to your wok and turn on high heat. Fry the garlic until fragrant being careful not to burn it. Reduce the heat to medium and add the Prik King curry paste. Fry the curry paste until fragrant, for about 1 minute.

Add the chicken and turn the heat back on high. Fry the chicken until about halfway cooked through (you may need to add some extra oil if the chicken seems too dry), then add the beans and lime leaf. Stir frequently.

Cook for about 2-3 minutes, then add the fish sauce, mushroom soy sauce, and  the sugar. Fry until the chicken is cooked through and the beans are semi-soft, about 5 minutes.

Serve over jasmine rice and enjoy!!

Oh my goodness, just look at it!

There is just something about this dish! The curry paste is directly fried right onto the chicken so it absorbs insane amounts of flavor! One more picture for good measure.

Thai Garlic Pork

 

Thai garlic pork

Thai garlic pork may possibly be the easiest meal you will ever make. The two ingredients you will need are garlic and pork. I bet you couldn’t have guessed that. If you don’t have pork on hand, or don’t like pork (not sure how that’s possible) you can definitely sub the pork for chicken.

Somehow this Thai garlic pork is one of the most flavorful Thai dishes out there and you need next to no ingredients! Sometimes I think we all need a meal that takes hardly any time to whip together after a long work day. So you can add this to your lazy after work recipes.

For the sauce, you guys will need oyster sauce, fish sauce, and thin soy sauce. I think by now most of you have these on hand, yay! So this Thai garlic pork should be a breeze for you. You can easily find all these sauces at an Asian market and possibly even at your local grocery store. If you struggle finding them, get them on Amazon! Here are links to purchase all of them.

Oyster sauce: Amazon You do not have to get this exact brand. Just make sure it says oyster sauce on the bottle.

Fish sauce: Amazon Any brand of fish sauce will do just fine, this brand just happens to be my favorite.

Thin soy sauce: Amazon This is the brand I used, but if you have mushroom soy sauce on hand use that.

Lets get started! First peel your garlic, cut the cloves into quarters, and smash the daylights out of it. I put the garlic in a ziplock and used a meat tenderizer to smash it. Next, cut the pork into thin bite sized pieces.

That was it for the prep work, crazy easy right??? Oh a side note, only use fresh garlic or this dish will not taste the same! Ok, now that we have that straightened out lets continue.

Alright, grab your wok and heat the oil and garlic on high. Fry the garlic until fragrant and slightly golden. Be careful not to burn it, it cooks fast on such high heat! Add the pork and cook stirring occasionally until the pork is fully cooked through. This takes about 5 minutes. If the pork seems too dry add about a tbsp. of water.

When the pork is fully cooked add the oyster sauce, fish sauce, thin soy sauce, black pepper, white pepper, and sugar. Thoroughly mix the pork and sauces together and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes. That’s it folks!

Serve over jasmine rice and garnish with cucumbers or cilantro sprigs. I topped mine with a fried egg, because honestly I have an addiction to adding fried eggs to dishes. Try it, you won’t regret it!
