Easy Chicken Laksa

Adapted from a Michelle Bridges recipe to add a few more vegetables, this is a quick, easy and filling dinner.  Prepare the veges in advance so you can just throw them in the pot when you need to.  Takes about 25 minutes start to finish, below is for 2 people.

  • Coconut Oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons laksa paste (you can make your own but to save time, the jarred ones are good too)
  • 1/2 stick lemongrass, finely chopped (optional)
  • Garlic, crushed/sliced
  • Chili flakes (optional)
  • pinch ground coriander
  • 250ml Coconut Milk (Ayams)
  • 500ml chicken stock
  • 1 chicken breast, very thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch broccoli, cut into small florets
  • small bunch of vermicelli rice noodles (you can soak in some hot water before adding)
  • handful of green beans
  • 6 button mushrooms
  • 2 cups bean sprouts
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup fresh coriander sprigs
  • Lime wedges, to serve
In a medium sized pot, set to medium heat, fry the laksa paste, lemongrass, garlic, chili flakes, ground coriander in coconut oil, until fragrant
Add the coconut milk and stir until combined with the paste
Add the chicken stock and increase the heat to high until it slightly simmers
Add in the chicken and stir for a few minutes
Add the broccoli, beans and mushrooms and continue to cook
At the end, add the soaked vermicelli noodles
To serve:
Place a handful of bean sprouts in the bottom of a bowl, spoon over the laksa mixture, top with a few more bean sprouts, mint, coriander (any other herbs you like such as thai basil) and a squeeze of lime juice!
