  • 3 skinless chicken thigh fillets
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 50g nest rice vermicelli noodles
  • 6 spring roll wrappers (rice pancakes)
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 spring onion, shredded
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and shredded
  • ¼ cucumber, deseeded and cut into batons
  • ½ a small bunch coriander
  • 3 tbsp hoisin sauce or chilli sauce, for dipping


  • STEP 1

    Put the chicken thighs between 2 pieces of baking paper and use a rolling pin to flatten to about 1/2cm thick, then season. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan then cook the chicken for 5-6 minutes on each side or until really golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and leave until cool enough to handle, then use forks to shred.

  • STEP 2

    Put the rice noodles in a bowl, pour over just-boiled water and leave to soak 5 minutes. Run under cold water and drain really well.

  • STEP 3

    Dip a rice paper wrapper into hot water until softened, then top with enough carrot, spring onion, chilli, cucumber, rice noodles, shredded chicken and coriander to make a horizontal line across the middle third, leaving a 2cm gap at either side.

  • STEP 4

    Fold up the bottom, then each side inwards and roll so the filling is enclosed. Repeat with the remaining wrappers. Serve with hoisin or chilli sauce for dipping.
