Not my favourite Simply Cook recipe but always nice to try something new. Adding the lime and coriander helped and I enjoyed it better when I had the leftovers for lunch the next day.

Daniel - Aug 31, 2019

Noddles absorbed the liquid making it very thick

Caroline - Aug 31, 2019

I was a bit disappointed as I tasted during cooking and first bite as it didnt seem authentic. BUT ... actually it was delicious. Will definitely get this one again. I added more noodles than stated and used beans instead of asparagus. Loved using squash. Might leave out the chicken next time and use tofu and/or prawns.
