Serves: 4 bowls
Glazed Chicken
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, about 5 ounces each, pounded flat
  • ¼ cup chili garlic sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tablespoon oil
Noodles and Vegetables
  • 6 ounces uncooked rice noodles
  • 1 cucumber chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and julienned
  • ½ cup peeled and julienned daikon radish
  • ¼ head cabbage, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Chopped peanuts
  • Chopped fresh cilantro
  • lime wedges
  1. For the glazed chicken: Sprinkle the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. In a bowl, combine the chili garlic sauce, soy sauce, honey, fish sauce, and minced garlic. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once heated, add the chicken breasts. Brown on each side for 3-4 minutes. Add in the chili garlic sauce, cover the pan, and cook the chicken for another 3-4 minutes on each side. Set the chicken aside. Let it rest for a few minutes then slice into strips.
  2. For the rice noodles: Place the rice noodles in a large bowl. In a pot on the stove, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Pour the boiling water over the rice noodles until they’re completely covered. Give the noodles a stir every 30 seconds and test doneness after about 3 minutes. Drain the noodles and place equal portions into 4 bowls.
  3. For the veggies: In a bowl, combine the cucumber, carrots, daikon radish, and cabbage. Add in the rice vinegar and honey. Stir to combine. Add an equal portion of vegetables to each bowl. Top the veggies with a sliced chicken breast, peanuts, cilantro and lime wedges for a squeeze of fresh juice.
The glaze on the chicken should be enough sauce to season the entire bowl, but if you'd like a really saucey bowl, prepare a double batch of the chili glaze and add a spoonful or two to the bowl right before serving.
