Thai chicken noodle salad

THAI CHICKEN NOODLE SALAD
Easy weight loss couldn't get better - this THAI CHICKEN NOODLE salad was packed with flavour.
I've made a similar salad before - using prawns. Take a look here Thai prawn noodle salad.
Not only was this salad so tasty, but it was very satisfying and more than filled a hunger gap. I couldn't believe the number of calories.
What's more the dish is portable - easily fitting into a lunch box. Just cook more chicken than you need, and save some for tomorrow's lunch.
The ingredients provide enough for two good portions, which I estimate at around 400 calories each!
Here's my deliciously spicy recipe:
Thai style chicken noodle salad
Ingredients (serves two)
300g chicken breast
50g rice noodles
one large avocado (optional)
half a carrot
cucumber - cut into batons
4 spring onions
couple of radishes
mixed salad leaves
Dressing
1 tablespoon of oil (we used sesame but use whatever you have)
teaspoon of honey
juice of half a lime (you could add some zest too if you wish)
coriander - I used a good sprinkle of dried as I had no fresh
half a red chilli - deseeded and chopped
salt (or a drop of fish sauce)
Finishing touch
sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds

Cook the rice noodles and allow to cool. We covered ours with hot water for 5 minutes, placed in cold water then drained. When cool, season with salt.

Mix the dressing ingredients together then pour half over the uncooked chicken. Leave to marinate if you have time (I left mine in the fridge overnight).

Fry the chicken in a little oil until cooked through. 

Slice the spring onions, cucumber, avocado and radish. Grate the carrot. Place these into a separate bowl.

Add the noodles and mix together then pour over the rest of the dressing.

Arrange your salad leaves on a plate - you won't need to dress these, as there will be plenty in the other ingredients. Top with the noodles and vegetables. Add the chicken.

Finish with a good sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds.
