Things we love: Sticky chicken with watermelon, radish salad

sticky kicking chicken watermelon radish salad & crunchy noodles

We love this sticky chicken and watermelon salad from celebrity chef Jaime 
great for the upcoming holidays, dinner parties or to treat the family.

  • To get started on your sticky chicken salad, first you'll need to submerge the noodles in a bowl of boiling hot water
  • Season chicken to your taste with your choice of salt, pepper and spices
  • Flatten chicken to about 1.5cm thick with a meat cleaver
  • Add the oil of your choice to a large frying pan turning each side after 3 to 4 minutes of cooking, until the chicken develops a char and is fully cooked through 
  • Add 1 tablespoon of sesame seed oil to your drained noodles
  •  ¼ of the noodles will be added to a hot pan and turned until crunchy
  • Cut the skin of the watermelon and dice the melon into rough chunks  
  • Shred lettuce and cut your radishes into halves
  • Finely chop some fresh mint and coriander to dress
  • Reduce the coriander stems with the soy or fish sauce in a saucepan add chilli,  ginger, chives, water and a tablespoon of sesame oil and a dash of  lime juice and blend until smooth
  • Dress chicken with sweet chilli sauce and sesame seeds 
  • Pour your dressing over the salad and toss gently and coat well, crush the pan fried  noodles over the top and garnish with some mint or coriander leaves.
