  • 2 tbs white vinegar

  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbs unsalted peanuts, crushed


  1. Very finely chop garlic and half the coriander and mix with the lime juice and vinegar. Pour half of this mixture into a small bowl and mix it with the sweet chilli sauce to make the dipping sauce.
  2. Use the other half of the coriander mixture to marinate the chicken for at least 20 minutes (or overnight if you have time).
