Thai chicken lettuce cups with avocado & lime


  • 50g Chang's rice vermicelli noodles
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Coles brand cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small (75g) carrot, peeled, cut into matchstick-size strips
  • 4 cm-piece (20g) fresh ginger, peeled, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 (14g) fresh loose long red chilli, finely chopped
  • 400g Coles chicken mince
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Coles brand oyster sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Maggi fish sauce
  • 40g fresh bean sprouts
  • 12 cos lettuce leaves (about 1/2 lettuce)
  • 1/2 firm but ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and cut into cubes
  • 1/2 lime, cut into 4 thin wedges


  • Step 1 - Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil over high heat. Stir in the vermicelli and cook, stirring often, for about 1-2 mins or until barely tender. Drain in a sieve and rinse under cold water until cooled. Drain well and transfer to a bowl. Stir the cornflour and 2 tablespoons water in a small bowl to blend.
  • Step 2 - Heat a wok or large heavy-based non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the oil, then add the carrot, ginger, garlic, and chilli and cook for about 1 min, or until fragrant. Add the mince and cook, breaking it up with a spoon or spatula, for 2 mins or until almost cooked. Stir in the oyster sauce, fish sauce, and cornflour mixture. Cook for about 1-2 mins to allow the flavours to blend and the sauce to simmer and thicken slightly. Fold in the bean sprouts.
  • Step 3 - Divide the vermicelli among the lettuce cups. Top with the mince mixture. Garnish with the avocado and coriander, and serve with the lime wedges.
