Method

  1. Preheat the grill to high. Put the chicken on a baking tray and grill for 10-12 minutes without turning, until cooked through.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to instructions. Drain and run cold water through to stop them sticking together.

  3. Mix the vegetables in a bowl. Thinly slice the chicken and add to the bowl, along with the noodles and coriander leaves.

  4. Mix the dressing ingredients together with 2 tablespoons water, pour over the salad and toss well. Serve straight away.

This is our favourite week night dinner recipe- it looks simple and is easy to make but it really is packed full of flavour. Even though we cook it often I'm always pleased when we are having this!

Made this with my brother and absolutely loved it!! I added more chilli to it-which added a bit more zing to it!! Great recipe.

TO JAZZ UP THE DRESSING ADD 1 TBSP OF CRUNCHY PEANUT BUTTER AND LOOSEN MIXTURE WITH HOT WATER INSTEAD OF COLD. MAKES A WONDERFUL SATAY SALAD DRESSING THAT WILL KEEP IN FRIDGE FOR UP TO A WEEK, IF YOU HAVE THE WILLPOWER TO RESIST FOR THAT LONG!!!!
