For the chicken
  • 350g chickenI used thighs, you can use breast if you prefer.
  • 1tbs olive oil
  • 2.5tbs oyster sauce
  • 1tbs Soy Sauce
  • 1tsp dark soy sauce
  • 1tsp sugar
  • 30ml water4 tbs or a dash as I’d call it
  • 2clove garlicor 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1tsp chill flakesoptional
Remaining ingredients
  • 1/2head iceberg lettuceor any lettuce you prefer
  • 1lt vegetable oil for deep fry
  • 40 g dried rice vermicelli noodles
Fry the noodles
  1. Heat the oil in a deep saucepan till hot enough that when you drop a small piece of noodle it puffed up right away.
  2. Drop the dried noodles in small amount at a time into the hot oil (please take care) remove the noodle with a slotted spoons as soon as the noodle has puffed. this will only take 3-4 second (see video) have everything ready to hand when cooking the noodles. Drain on kitchen paper and leave the noodle to cool while you get everything else ready.
Prepare the lettuce
  1. Not much I can tell you on this really. You want to keep the lettuce in a wrap able shape as possible, like a cup. I simply remove the core (bottom) of the iceberg and cut it in half. Gently remove all the leaves and soak them in ice cold water to crisp. Drain and arrange them on a plate ready. This is a great job for the kids to do.
  1. Cut the chicken in to small cubes and mince it in a food processor. Heat up the oil in a wok or saucepan and add in the chicken, cook for few minutes, so that the chicken are just cooked.
  2. Add in the remaining ingredients for the chicken and give it a good mix, cook for about 5 more minutes. Taste and adjust as require.
  3. Serve each the chicken and noodles in a bowl accompany by the iceberg and let the kids (and grown up) have all the fun putting everything together. We always have a side of sweet chilli sauce with ours as it’s Emj favourite.
  4. Enjoy.
