Easy refreshing Thai chicken

About this recipe: A dish inspired by my favourite soup, Thai chicken noodle. Designed to be much easier then the soup with just as much yummy flavour. This chicken can go with many side dishes, from salads to noodles to rice.

Leer Yorkshire, England, UK

Serves: 2 

  • 2 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
  • olive oil, for frying
  • 1 handful fresh coriander, chopped
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 chilli, chopped
  • 2cm piece fresh ginger, chopped
  • 2 level teaspoons turmeric
  • salt and black pepper, to taste

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Lightly brown your chicken to give it some colour in a frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil.
  3. Get some tin foil and place in a baking tray. Put all your ingredients, including the chicken, in the foil, making sure everything is coated well. Wrap up in the foil to keep all the moisture inside.
  4. Place the foil parcel in the oven for around 30 minutes. Fan assisted ovens may take a little less time.
  5. While this is cooking, you can prepare any side dishes to go with it, whether it be rice, noodles, salad, etc.
  6. Finally, serve and enjoy!


This recipe is very adaptable. Amounts of ingredients can be changed quite a bit to fit your tastes - don't like chillies? Leave them out! I usually cook this with chicken breast, but any type of chicken will work well, be it thighs, drumsticks - whatever you like! Though I have not tried it out, it may work well with other mild meats.
