5 Spice Chicken & Mango Noodles

I have been pouring over the magazines again for some interesting and new recipes to try and this one is really yummy and easy for a summers night. This one came from Woman's Day.


500gm chicken breast, sliced
2 tsp Chinese Five Spice
1 tbsp peanut Oil
1/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
100gm vermicelli noodles, cooked and drained
2 cups snow pea sprouts
1 bunch coriander, leaves picked
1 bunch mint, leaves picked
1 mango, peeled and thinly sliced
4 spring onions, thinly sliced


2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 birdseye chilli, finely chopped

  • Toss the chicken strips in the five spice powder until well coated
  • Heat the peanut oil in a large pan or wok and stir fry chicken until golden, remove
  • Add the macadamias and fry until golden, remove
  • In a small jug whisk all the dressing ingredients together
  • In a large bowl combine the noodles, sprouts, herbs, mango, onion and nuts. Drizzle with half the dressing and toss together
  • Add the chicken over the top and dress with remaining half of the dressing
