Crispy 12 hours marinated lemon grass chicken with glass noodles, mint and chili

Method

ServesĀ 8 people

Mix the marinade in a bowl with the chicken, making sure to coat and then refrigerate for 12 hours (or a min of 2 hours).

Noodles, cook the noodles as instructed on the packet. Then drain the noodles in cold water to stop them from cooking, mix with sesame oil and add the crunchy sliced up vegtables.

Make your dressing (making sure to taste) by adding the ingredients into a mixing bowl- you may need to add more chili or less to your liking.

Get a griddle pan very hot, adding oil, then cook your chicken getting it crispy all over. Reserve any juice that might come into the pan for pouring over the dish once finished.

Toss the noodles in the dressing and then plate up adding the crispy warm chicken on top. Garnish with extra toasted peanuts, sesame seeds, mint, coriander, chili sliced thinly, lime wedges and spring onion.
