You can cook the noodles and toss with the dressing up to 1 day in advance. Store, covered, in the refrigerator. This will give the noodles a chance to absorb some of the great flavours, then stir in

capsicum and herbs before serving.

 

100g vermicelli noodles

1 red capsicum, deseeded and thinly sliced

2 tbsp chopped chives

½ cup coriander leaves

½ cup mint leaves

½ cup Thai basil leaves

 

DRESSING

2 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp fish sauce

1 tbsp caster sugar

1cm piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated

½ long red chilli, finely chopped

 

CRISPY CHICKEN

1 egg

1cm piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated

1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed

¾ cup plain flour

2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder

2 tsp sea salt flakes

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

2 large chicken breasts, thinly sliced

vegetable oil, for shallow-frying

 

1 To make the dressing, whisk all the ingredients in a small bowl until the sugar dissolves.

 

2 Place the noodles in a large bowl, cover with boiling water and stand for 5 minutes. Drain, then return to the bowl. Add the dressing and toss to combine. Add the capsicum and herbs and

toss to combine.

 

3 To make the crispy chicken, whisk the egg, ginger and garlic in a large bowl until just combined. Combine the flour, five-spice powder, salt and pepper in a separate large bowl. Dip the chicken

pieces in the egg mixture, drain off excess, then toss in the flour mixture.

 

4 Fill a wok or deep frying pan halfway with oil and shallow-fry the chicken, in batches, for 2–3 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. Drain on paper towel.

 

5 Divide the noodle salad among four serving bowls and top with the chicken.
