Lemongrass & Sweet Chilli Vermicelli Salad

Lemongrass & Sweet Chilli Vermicelli Salad

By Melanie Richardson

Now this one is FIRE 🔥

My inspo for this recipe came from my good old trusty Coles magazine & it is going to be a new regular in my household.

It’s so refreshing & packs a massive flavour punch from the lemongrass & sweet chilli. It’s perfect for hot summer nights when you don’t want something too heavy or too hot.

I marinated the chicken a few hours earlier in the sauce & left it in the fridge, but it can be made all at once in 30 mins if you don’t have the time to prep ahead.
I put the serving size as four as I basically feed three people with how much the man in my house eats, but a good way to reduce the calories is by increasing the serving size to five or six.

Give yourself a smaller portion of noodles as they are predominantly carbs, but the rest is fine as it’s healthy veg & chicken for protein ☑️ making it a great low cal dinner option!

TRUST ME ON THIS ONE - try it, you'll love it x
