VIETNAMESE CHICKEN SALAD
COOKBOOK: Home Food (all your favourites with a twist)
This one was a simple dish. I almost feel that vietnamese food lacks something in the herb department. The vietnamese love their coriander and this is the only herb I didn't add as it makes me violently ill. Maybe with coriander it would have had a completely different taste.
It tasted like it lacked something although the family loved it. For me it was very plain, nice enough but plain.
I hope I haven’t turned you off, if you like simple and fuss free meal this is definitely a recipe for you to try.
3 chicken thighs, cooked
2 tablespoons of lime (juice of one lime)
2 tablespoons of fish sauce
1 tablespoon of sugar
2 red chilli , finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed or chopped
2 shallots , chopped
2 handfuls of bean sprouts
large handful of chinese cabbage, thinly shredded
Shred the chicken. I cooked my chicken with a little oil in the oven for 40mins.
Heat a little oil in a pan and fry lightly the garlic, chilli, add the shallots, fish sauce and sugar. Add the cabbage and bean sprouts. Fry for a further minute.
Add the chicken and mix well.
Ready to serve.
