  • 1 long red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 100g raw cashews, roughly chopped
  • 3 teaspoons lime juice
  • 3 teaspoons fish sauce
  • ¼ cup sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped coriander

Heat a large non stick frying pan over medium high heat. Spray pan lightly with oil spray and add chicken. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until browned and just cooked through. Add the green onions, chilli, cashews, lime juice, fish sauce, sweet chilli sauce and coriander. Cook for a further 1-2 minutes until mixture is warmed through. Divide between Asian ceramic spoons and garnish each spoon with a coriander leaf.

Note: To serve the dish as a meal, serve the mince mixture with lettuce leaves and let everyone make up their own lettuce ‘parcels’.
