Ingredients

    2 x Chicken breast fillets
    1 x tbs Peanut oil
    125g (1/2 cup) Home -made laksa paste (see recipe)
    2 x 280ml cans coconut milk
    750ml (3 cups) chicken stock
    A pinch of salt
    500g Hokkien noodles (or noodles of your choice)
    100g Bean sprouts
    2/3 loosely packed fresh Vietnamese mint leaves (garnish)
    2 tbs fried shallots (garnish)

Directions

Now I like to fry my chicken a little instead of poaching it. So it's really up to you how you do your chicken, but once it is done place it to one side …

Once your chicken is cooked and put aside heat some oil in a wok over a medium-high heat. Add laksa paste and cook , stirring occasionally for about 2 mins or until you can really start to smell that real laksa fragrance, stir in coconut milk and stock and bring to boil, Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered for 5-10 mins.

Add chicken and cook, stirring for 2 minutes or until hot.

As this is happening using the same heatproof bowl as before (providing its big enough) place your noodles and cover with boiling water, put aside for 2-5 mins to soften. Drain and serve out to bowls, throw in a few bean sprouts (and tofu if you choose) and then start serving out that laksa.

Add some mint leaves, dried and fresh shallots and serve up…..Maybe a bit of chilli depending on your tastes and enjoy!
