Vietnamese Style Caramelized Chicken with Glass Noodles recipe
(Yes we have hidden Sprouts – it's Christmas after all!)
Vietnamese Style Caramelized Chicken with Glass Noodles recipeFor the Chicken marinade
6 tbsp Soy Sauce
4 tbsp Fish Sauce
1 tbsp grated Ginger
1 ½ Lemons juiced
175g soft brown Sugar
2 red Chillies finely chopped
(1) Add all the ingredients to a saucepan.
(2) Heat gently stirring well to prevent the sugar burning.
(3) Simmer until you have a syrup.
(4) Set aside.
Roasting ingredients:-
1 small Chicken
6 dried Bullet Chillies
Cracked Black Pepper
A dash of Oil
½ Lemon
3 cloves of Garlic
(1) Place the ½ lemon and Garlic cloves in the cavity of the Chicken.
(2) Pour a small amount of oil over the Chicken and season with the cracked Black Pepper.
(3) Pierce the skin of the Chicken three times through each breast and insert the dried Chillies. If you cut the stem end of the Chillies and squeeze gently the seeds will fall into the meat.
(4) Spread half of the marinade over the skin of the Chicken. Keeping the remainder on one side.
(5) Heat the oven to 180c and roast for about an hour or until the juices run clear if you spike the thickest part of the thigh. Don't over cook as you want the meat to hold together in the stir-fry.
(6) Set aside.
You can choose your own combination but as this was our Christmas meal we added de-constructed Sprouts for a bit of fun!
4 outer leaves of a Savoy Cabbage
8 Sprouts. Strip the leaves and break up the centres (Yes Sue is a little insane!)
3 small Carrots
2 medium Onions
(1) Drain the cooking juices from the Chicken.
(2) Cut as much meat from the Chicken as you require into medium sized chunks. Not too small or it will break down when you fry it. You can remove the skin if you wish.
(3) Finely chop all the vegetable ingredients. Set aside 2 leaves of the Savoy. You are going to deep fry these.
(4) Heat a large frying pan or Wok.
(5) Depending on whether you are serving with rice or noodles add them to boiling salted water and boil until ready. Drain and cover.
(6) Heat your deep fat fryer.
(7) Add the vegetables to the Chicken cooking juices when the frying pan / Wok is smoking hot and fry until tender.
(8) Add the Chicken at the end and turn everything so the Chicken is heated and coated in the frying broth.
(9) Fry the 2 remaining sliced Savoy leaves until crispy and drain.
To serve place your noodles or rice on the plates. Add the stir-fry and dress with the deep fried Savoy leaves and a sprinkling of Coriander if you wish. We have also found by experiment that Glass Noodles behave like Prawn Crackers if you break them up and deep fry them. Warm the remainder of the syrup and put it in a bowl. This can be drizzled over the plated dish and also used as a dip.

We're a month old - Eat well on Universal CreditTomorrow Eat Well on Universal credit will have been on-line for a month.
We are a bit overwhelmed by the support we have received. But let's get the boring bit out of the way first...

So onto the important stuff....
Following the Yorkshire Evening Post article relating to the failures of Universal Credit we have been invited to visit London to present the petition - in early November. We will also be featured in The York Press next Monday (15 /10/18) and we have been approached by the National PR team of The Salvation Army to deliver some cooking demonstrations. Not bad for a couple of ex tent dwellers cooking on a budget of £4 a day for us and our dog Buster!
This is a “Not For Profit” venture on our behalf. We will never take anything for ourselves. Any donations however large or small are gratefully accepted and will only ever be used to supply materials for food presentations.  Any surplus will be donated to The Salvation Army or other chosen homeless related charities.
So thank you all. Please continue to share, like, download and enjoy our recipes! Sue & Tony
