Today we're going for an authentic tasting Pad Thai. Almost a traditional dish of Thailand and so fresh and light - perfect for spring. Dine in this evening and celebrate Thai cuisine as part of International Dining Week.

125g (half a 250g pack) rice noodles
3 tbsp lime juice about 2 limes
½ tsp cayenne pepper
2 tsp light muscovado sugar

1/2 cup of chicken stock
2 tbsp vegetable oil
200g chicken breast, sliced thinly
4 spring onions, sliced
140g beansprouts
25g salted peanut, finely chopped
a small handful of coriander leaves

To serve:

1 or 2 lime, cut into wedges
Sinclair Condiments sweet chilli sauce

  1. Put the noodles in a large heatproof bowl, pour boiling water over them and leave for 4 minutes, then drain and refresh under cold running water.
  2. Put the lime juice, cayenne, chicken stock and sugar in a bowl and mix well. Have all the other ingredients ready by the cooker.
  3. Heat the oil and fry the chicken. Add the spring onions and noodles and toss around. Tip in the lime juice mixture, then stir in the beansprouts and half the peanuts and coriander. Cook for 1 minute until everything is heated through.
