Aromatic Chicken with Crispy Rice Vermicelli 

Serve:2

Ingredients for the main part:

500 gram                Chicken thigh-skinned and deboned

50 gram                   Rice vermicelli

150 ml                      Vegetable oil

1tbs                           Thai green curry paste

1tbs                           Fish sauce

1tbs                           Oyster sauce

1tbs                            Sugar

1tbs                            Chopped coriander leaves

1tbs                            Chopped garlic

Ingredients for spicy dressing:

2tbs                             Lime juice

1tbs                              Fish sauce

1tbs                              Chopped red chilli

1tbs                              Chopped red onion

1tsp                              Honey

Method

-Put the chicken thighs, Thai green curry paste, fish sauce, oyster sauce, sugar, coriander and garlic into the mixing bowl. Mix all the ingredients and marinate for at least 2 hours (even better overnight).

-Once ready to cook, preheat the oven to 200 Celsius.

-Put about 25 ml of oil, salt and pepper on the marinated chicken. Mix well.

-Grill the chicken thighs on the hot griddle pan about 1 minute on each side.

-Transfer the chicken thighs onto the baking tray. Bake until the chicken cooked (approx 20-25 minutes).

-Heat the rest of the oil in the wok (or saucepan) until it is very hot. Then add the rice vermicelli into the hot oil. The rice vermicelli should puff up immediately. Quickly transfer the rice vermicelli, by using the spatula or turner to take the crispy rice vermicelli onto the kitchen towel.

-Mix the red chilli, lime juice, fish sauce, honey and red onion in the small bowl, set aside.

-Lay the crispy rice vermicelli, top with the chicken and drizzle with the dressing then serve immediately.

Tip:

-Make sure the oil is very hot before fry the rice vermicelli, but please do take care.

-I love to slice the cooked chicken then put into the crunchy vermicelli, drizzle with the dressing then fold all the ingredients together then serve. However, you can serve the dressing on the side as it can be quite spicy for some.

-Aromatic Chicken with Crispy Rice Vermicelli is a great alternative side dish for BBQ.
