CORE Chicken Stirfry w Orange & Cori

The nest of lettuce and carrot is very filling and crunchy and a nice textural change to the noodles with the orange and coriander flavour
Serves: 6 in nest, 4 without

Difficulty: Easy


  • 400g chicken breast, sliced thin
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 small oranges, peeled and segmented
  • 1/2 cup coriander, chopped
  • 150g rice vermicelli noodles
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 4 cups stir fry vegetables (I used broccoli, cauliflower, capsicum, brussell sprouts and 1/2 cup frozen corn)
  • 3 spring onions, chopped
  • Optional - 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • lettuce shredded, about 2 cups (for nest)
  • carrot, grated, about 1 1/2 cups (for nest)

Add oil to wok and heat.
Stirfry chicken, onion, garlic and oranges until chicken is cooked.
Add vegies, soy sauce and herbs and stir fry for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile put the noodles into a bowl and cover with boiling water for 5 mins, then drain.
Line a bowl with shredded lettuce like a nest, then line with the carrot (this half fills the bowl so you have a much smaller serve of stirfry)
Add the noodles to the strifry and warm through (add chilli if using - is very mild).
Serve stir fry in lettuce and carrot nest.
