Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Let the rice stand, covered, while you finish the dish.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat until shimmering, and cook and stir the garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in the chicken, and cook and stir until seared and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in soy sauce and peanuts, and cook and stir until the chicken is no longer pink inside, and the soy sauce has coated the chicken and peanuts, 5 more minutes. Remove the chicken mixture from the heat.
  3. Line 4 plates with lettuce leaves, and scoop 1 cup of cooked rice onto each leaf. Top with chicken-peanut mixture, and sprinkle each plate with mandarin orange slices.

Very simple, fast and easy dish. I added poje tsp of sugar as the Vietnamese do, too.

Cooked this for my wife and I, and thought it was good but lacked flavor from the peanuts and soy sauce was watery. Added a tbsp of peanut butter to the leftovers on the stove (about 2 servings) and reheated. Wow! Gave it the flavor and consistency I was looking for. Will try it again with this modification.
