I have travelled to Thailand a few times and this is by far and away my favourite Thai dish. I have tried to recreate this spicy chicken noodle broth using ingredients readily available in Western Europe. The paste recipe makes 8 servings, and proportions are provided for 2 meal servings.
A wonderful soup with fantastic fresh Asian flavours.
This Thai spicy chicken salad is one of my favourite ever Thai dishes that just keeps me going back every year. It is so quick so easy and it is great for BBQs, family dinners or parties. I hope you enjoy my recipe.
