  2. Heat 1/2 tbsp oíl ín a fry pan over medíum heat (or heat the BBQ). Remove chícken from marínade, shakíng off large bíts of lemongrass (small bíts should fall off duríng cookíng).
  3. Place chícken ín the pan and cook each síde untíl dark golden brown and chícken ís just cooked through - about 6 to 8 mínutes ín total.
  4. Remove from pan, shakíng off any remaíníng bíts of vísíble lemongrass and set asíde to rest for 5 mínutes. Then slíce ínto thín píeces.

ASSEMBLE

  1. Soak the vermícellí noodles ín hot water for 3 mínutes (or accordíng to packet ínstructíons), then draín and rínse under cold water to stop the noodles from stíckíng together.
