4 servings Ingredients: • 1 tsp canola oil • ½ cup coarsely chopped coriander • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, halved lengthways, seeds removed • 1 oz. chopped peanuts, divided • 1½ lbs. poached chicken breasts, cooled and shredded • 2 tsp sambal • 2 spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced • 4 cups zucchini “noodles”
1. Using a food processor, rolling pin or the side of a chef’s knife, crush ½ ounce of peanuts. In a small bowl, mix the crushed peanuts with the sambal and oil until blended.
2. Using a vegetable peeler, shave zucchini into thin ribbons to make pappardelle-like noodles. Cut cucumber into matchsticks (should yield about 2 cups).
