Thinking of new quick and tasty evening meals are often hard to come by. With often a short repertoire the fall back recipes have often been done one too many times.
Travelling over SouthEast Asia you can’t help but notice the number of street food stalls that cook up wholesome meals in less than 5 minutes! Even with a no preparation done, choosing the correct ingredients and keeping the recipe simple a meal can by defiantly brought together in less than 30 minutes.
Boneless chicken breast or thigh (the later taking a bit longer) are a great source of protein and don’t take to much time on the heat. Chickens are used a lot in Asian cooking with birds roaming the street…taking the idea free range chicken literally!
This marinade for the chicken is used a lot in Vietnam especially in Hanoi. On the other hand the dipping sauce is a new touch. I finished this meal with a Thai cucumber salad and noodles.
