  • good handful of fresh coriander leaves
  • handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 1 firm, ripe mango peeled, cut into fine strips

Dressing

  • 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin rapeseed oil
  • 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • juice of 1 lime

Instructions

  • Place all the ingredients for marinade in a non metallic bowl and mix well to combine. Stir in the chicken and cover with cling film. Chill for at least 2 hours or overnight is perfect to allow the flavours to penetrate the chicken.
  • Place the rice noodles an a bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave for about 5 minutes, until softened or according to the packet instruction. Place the red onion slices in a bowl of iced water for 2-3 minutes.
    this will make them crisp and will tone down the flavour a little. Drain both and place in a large bowl. Roughly tear the herbs and add to the bowl with the mango and cashew nuts.
  • Preheat the grill to high. Place the chicken strips on a foil lined grill rack and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, turning once, until cooked through and tender.
  • Meanwhile make the dressing. Place the soy sauce in a small bowl, then whisk in the extra virgin rapeseed oil, sweet chilli sauce and lime juice.
  • To serve, add the cooked chicken and the dressing to the noodles and toss until well combined, then divide among wide-rimmed bowls.
