PREP TIME

COOK TIME
5 minutes + cooling
SERVES
4
Ingredients

2 tsp sea salt  

400g (14 oz) chicken breast, sliced into small, thin pieces 

4 cups finely sliced cabbage 

1 cup julienned carrot 

200g (7 oz) cherry tomatoes, halved 

1-2 long red chillies, finely sliced 

1-2 birdseye chillies, finely sliced (or to taste) 

1 lime 

½ bottle Marion’s Kitchen Vietnamese-style Tangy Dressing* 

1 cup fresh mint leaves 

¼ cup crispy fried shallots 

Steps
  • Step 1

    Heat a small saucepan of water until just simmering. Add salt, then add the chicken and cook gently for 2–3 minutes or until just cooked through. Drain the chicken and allow to cool completely, then shred the meat.

  • Step 2

    When ready to serve, place the cabbage, carrot, cherry tomatoes and chillies in a large bowl, along with the shredded chicken. Squeeze over the lime juice. Add the Marion’s Kitchen Vietnamese-style Tangy Dressing. Toss until well combined, then transfer to a serving plate. Scatter over the mint leaves and the fried shallots, then serve. 

  • Notes
    Notes:

    – My Marion’s Kitchen Vietnamese-style Tangy Dressing is available in major supermarkets in Australia. If you can’t get a hold of it, use the nuoc cham dressing from my Vietnamese-style Pepper Chicken Noodle Bowl. 

Marion's Kitchen is for everyone who finds joy in flavour and happiness in every bite. Marion's Kitchen is for everyone who finds joy in flavour and happiness in every bite.

So beautiful and tasty. I can’t get the dressing where I live, but I did have the ingredients on hand for her recipe.
