Crunchy sesame noodle and lime salad with chicken 

Serves 4

  • 200g (7oz) rice or egg noodles
  • 1 bottle sesame oil
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 spring onions
  • 1 red onion
  • Small bunch coriander
  • Sesame seeds
  • 4 limes (2 in wedges, 2 juiced)
  • 1 bottle sweet chilli sauce

Cold noodles sound icky but this quick noodle salad is delicious

and dead easy to do.

First cook the noodles in plenty of boiling water until

they are just done. Run them under cold water to stop them cooking further.

Drain and oil them lightly with sesame oil. Roast the chicken breasts in the

oven with salt and pepper and a little sesame oil. Allow them to cool and slice

thinly. Cut the spring onions and red onion finely and chop the coriander.

When you are ready for lunch, mix all the ingredients

together, finishing with the coriander, sesame seeds, lime juice and sesame

oil, with a little sweet chilli sauce over the top. This is healthy, delicious

and really good on a hot, lazy summer afternoon.
