Cooking Instructions

Portion the rotisserie chicken or, if you are going to cook it yourself, preheat the oven to 180°C.

Place the chicken, breast-side up, on a large roasting tray.

Mix the chilli, garlic, ginger, soya sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, treacle sugar, honey and olive oil in a bowl. Baste the chicken with half of the mixture and stuff with the juiced lime halves.

Roast for about 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until cooked and tender, basting every 10 minutes with the remaining basting sauce. Portion the chicken.

Place the noodles in the centre of a bowl, scatter over the radish, spring onion, mango and nori.

Pour over the dressing, top with a dollop of Japanese mayonnaise and garnish with coriander. Serve with portions of roast chicken.

Cook's note: The chicken can also be roasted in a kettle braai in a foil tray.
