Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Vietnamese Chicken & Brown Rice Bowl

Rinse the brown rice, add it to a pot with plenty of cold water and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium and cook for 15-20 min or until it's tender with a slight bite

Once cooked, drain and return it to the pot and keep covered until serving

2 Vietnamese Chicken & Brown Rice Bowl

Place your hand flat onto the chicken breast fillet[s]

Slice in half as if you were cutting a burger bun, so you are left with two thinner pieces

 

3 Vietnamese Chicken & Brown Rice Bowl

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick), with a matching lid, over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the chicken breast[s] and cook for 3 min on each side or until golden

Add a couple of splashes of water to the pan and cover with a lid

Cook for a further 10-15 min or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)

4 Vietnamese Chicken & Brown Rice Bowl

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

Roll the lime[s] with your hand on a hard surface (to release more juice!) and cut in half

Combine the rice vinegar, lime juice, chopped chilli and fish sauce in a small bowl – this is your Vietnamese dressing

5 Vietnamese Chicken & Brown Rice Bowl

Peel the carrot[s], then continue to peel lengths until you end up with a pile of carrot 'ribbons'

Cut the cucumber[s] in half, scrape out the inner seeds with a teaspoon and slice finely

Slice the radishes as finely as you can into thin rounds

Combine the carrot ribbons, sliced cucumber and radishes with the Vietnamese dressing and a pinch of salt in a large bowl 

6 Vietnamese Chicken & Brown Rice Bowl

Strip the mint leaves from their stems and chop them roughly

Chop the coriander finely, including the stalks

Trim and finely slice the spring onion[s]

Chop the roasted peanuts coarsely (or bash them in their bag)

7 Vietnamese Chicken & Brown Rice Bowl

Once the chicken is cooked, transfer it to a plate and leave the pan over a medium heat (no need to give it a clean!)

Add the soy sauce sachets and honey and cook for 2-3 min, stirring all the time, until the sauce has thickened and is sticky

Once sticky, remove the pan from the heat, return the chicken to the pan and turn it in the glaze until it's fully coated
