A delicious asian dish. I love the the fragrant coriander and spices.



8 Chicken thigh fillets cut into bite size pieces
1 tsp cumin
1 tspn ground coriander
2 tablespoons grated palm sugar
1 cup loosely packed fresh thai basil leaves
1 cup loosely packed fresh coriander leaves
3 cups (240g) bean sprouts

1 small red chilli (add 3 if you like it extra extra hot)
2 cloves garlic sliced
20g fresh lemon grass, (note I always use finely sliced lemon myrtle leaves, tastes the same and easier to prepare)
3 green onions, chopped
1 coriander root, chopped
1/4 cup (60ml) lime juice
1 tablespoon fish sauce
2 tablespoons grated palm sugar
(I found crystalized palm sugar in the health food store)

  • Combine chicken in large bowl with cumin, coriander, and sugar, mix well so that chicken is coated
  • Cook chicken in batches in heated and lightly oiled fry pan until browned all over and cooked through
  • Blend sauce ingredients to make the Nim Jam sauce
  • Place combined herbs, sprouts on plate, place chicken on top and then drizzle sauce .
