Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 450 g total)
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 225 g dried rice vermicelli (about 1/8-inch/3mm wide)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 8 green onions thinly sliced
  • 4 teaspoons lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons liquid honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon Asian chili sauce (such as sriracha)
  • 1 sweet red pepper thinly sliced
  • 1 carrots julienned
  • half cucumber chopped

Method

Sprinkle chicken with a pinch each of the salt and pepper. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until no longer pink inside, about 12 minutes. Cover loosely; let stand for 5 minutes before thinly slicing crosswise.

Meanwhile, in large bowl, add vermicelli and enough boiling water to cover. Let stand for 6 minutes; drain. Rinse with cold water; drain again.

Meanwhile, in small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook ginger and garlic, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in green onions and remaining salt and pepper; cook until onions are softened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in lime juice, soy sauce, honey and chili sauce.

In large bowl, toss ginger mixture with vermicelli, red pepper, carrot and cucumber. Top with chicken.
