Ingredients

4 chicken thigh fillets 

180g (6.3 oz) dried rice vermicelli noodles 

1 tbsp vegetable oil 

100g (3.5 oz) baby spinach leaves 

sliced cucumber, to serve 

finely julienned carrot, to serve 

¼ cup roasted peanuts, crushed or finely chopped 

roughly torn mint leaves, to serve 

 

Marinade: 

2 tbsp fish sauce 

1 garlic clove, finely grated 

1 tsp sugar 

½ tsp ground black pepper 

 

Nuoc cham dressing: 

3 tbsp fish sauce 

3 tbsp sugar 

2 tbsp white vinegar 

2 tbsp lime juice 

1 long red chilli, finely chopped 

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

Steps
  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, combine the chicken fillets with the marinade ingredients. Set aside to marinate while you prepare the remaining ingredients.

  • Step 2

    For the nuoc cham dressing, place the ingredients in a bowl and whisk until well combined. Set aside for later. 

  • Step 3

    Cook the noodles in boiling water for 2-3 minutes or until just cooked. Drain and rinse until cool. Divide among serving bowls.

  • Step 4

    Heat the oil on a large grill plate or in a frying pan over high heat. Add the chicken fillets and cook 3-4 minutes on the first side or until lovely and golden. Turn the fillets over and reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from heat and slice the chicken.

  • Step 5

    To serve, arrange the baby spinach, cucumber and carrot on top of the noodles. Top with chicken slices. Spoon over a generous amount of the nuoc cham dressing. Top with the crushed peanuts and mint leaves and serve.
