Thai Rama Chicken, 'Praram Long Song'Featured

Thai Rama Chicken, 'Praram Long Song'

This dish dates to the time of King Rama 5, about 140 years ago. Originally it was made with beef, but nowadays pork and chicken are often used. Praram is a name for the God Rama, or King Rama, in The Ramkian. The Ramakian is the Thai version of an Indian Hundu epic written 2000 years ago. Long Song translates as 'take a shower'.

Praram Long Song is a popular dish in American Thai restaurants, but not often found in Thailand. Americans are fond of the peanut sauce, and in our recipe it's quite delicious. Sometimes called Swimming Rama, you can use broccoli, spinach, or other greens of your choice.
