Spicy chicken lettuce cups

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Servings: 4 people


1. Make a marinade by mixing the chilli sauce, soy and sesame oil. Add the chicken and chill for 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, cook the soya beans in boiling water for 3 minutes, drain and refresh in cold water, then set aside.

3. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan. Add the chicken, reserving the marinade, and fry for 5 minutes each side. Transfer the meat to a board and roughly chop.

4. Wipe the pan with kitchen towel, then add the spring onions and fry with a splash of water for 2 minutes. Pour in the reserved marinade and leave to bubble for 2 minutes, then add the chicken, soya beans, mint, coriander, sesame seeds and stir well. Cut into a thick portion and check that it is cooked through, with no pink showing.

5. Arrange the lettuce leaves on a plate. Put a spoonful of chicken on each leaf and serve with lime wedges and some rice noodles, if you like.
