Be a kid or a teenage or an adult or an oldie, chicken lovers trend all over the world at all times! One meat that is a favourite of all beyond belief! When cooked, it can be presented in many guises. Sauté it, fry it, toss it, bake it, steam it – eat it the way you want to. Whatever its form may be upon being cooked, its flavour may change but its flesh remains high in protein, low in fat and can be digested easily.
For laksa paste, remove the seeds from the red chillies and put them in the mixer jar.
Add eight to ten shallots, garlic, lemon grass, turmeric, peanuts, salt, one tablespoon olive oil and a little water and grind to a smooth paste. Chop the remaining shallots and set aside.
Heat the remaining oil in a pan. Add chicken and sauté for two to three minutes. Add the laksa paste and stir. Add chicken stock, prawns and coconut milk. Mix and cook till both chicken and prawns are done.
Put the noodles in a bowl. Pour the laksa over them. Top with bean sprouts, chopped shallots, mint leaves, fried onion slices and lemon slice and serve hot.
