This combo of spicy bean salad and chicken thigh is an interesting take on authentic hawker-style food in Thailand. Instead of cooking the chicken on the grill the entire time, this recipe has you cook the chicken sous vide for two hours to ensure it’s extra tender — then you’ll just finish it on the grill (BBQ) for flavor.

Ingredients for 1

  • 1 skinless, boneless chicken thigh
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups green beans, sliced into 1-inch segments
  • 1/2 cup Thai basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fried shallots
  • 2–3 Thai chiles, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon palm sugar or packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic clove, crushed
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons roasted red chile paste

Step 1
Set the Biolomix Sous Vide Cooker to 147ºF (64ºC).

Step 2
Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place in a medium zipper lock or vacuum seal bag. Seal using the water immersion technique or a vacuum sealer on the dry setting.

Step 3
Place the bag in the water bath and set the timer for 2 hours.

Step 4
About 20 minutes before the chicken is finished, prepare the salad: In a large mortar, pound the green beans with a pestle until tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

Step 5
Add the basil, cilantro, mint, fried shallots, and 1 to 2 Thai chiles to the beans.

Step 6
Place the palm sugar in the mortar and pound until smooth. Add the garlic and the remaining Thai chile and pound to chop. Add the fish sauce and lime juice and pound to combine.

Step 7
Pour the dressing over the green bean mixture and toss to coat. Season to taste with salt.

Step 8
About 10 minutes before the chicken is finished, preheat the grill to high.
