Ingredients

  • 2 skinless free-range chicken breasts, sliced
  • 2 tbsp sweet chilli dipping sauce
  • Grated zest and juice of 1 lime, plus wedges to serve
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 300g pack fine rice noodles

Method

  1. Put the chicken breasts in a bowl with the sweet chilli sauce and lime zest, then set aside for 10 minutes. Heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat and fry the chicken for 4-5 minutes, turning, until cooked through. Set aside.
  2. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, rinse then put in a large bowl. Mix the lime juice, fish sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil together, then pour over the noodles. Add the cooked chicken to the bowl with the chilli, cucumber, spring onions and coriander, then toss together and serve with lime wedges.
