Colder months are coming, and that means lots of laksa! This version is laced with mild Southeast Asian spices and creamy coconut milk, plus fish sauce and rice vinegar for the perfect ratio of sweet, savoury and salty flavours - which the juicy chicken breast and silky vermicelli soak up beautifully.

• Boil the kettle. Finely chop garlic. Roughly chop Asian greens. Slice lime into wedges. • Place vermicelli noodles in a medium heatproof bowl. Add enough boiled water to cover noodles. Cover with a plate, then set aside until tender, 3-4 minutes. Drain the noodles, then set aside. • While noodles are soaking, chop chicken breast into 2cm chunks.
• In a large saucepan, heat a good drizzle of olive oil over high heat. Cook chicken, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through (when no longer pink inside), 5-6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, then set aside. • Return pan to medium-high heat. Cook garlic and Southeast Asian spice blend until fragrant, 1 minute. Add coconut milk and the water. Bring to boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer until thickened, 5-7 minutes.
• Return chicken to saucepan. Add Asian greens, the soy sauce and the brown sugar. Simmer until chicken is warmed through and greens are wilted, 2-3 minutes. • Remove pan from heat. Stir in fish sauce & rice vinegar mix. Add a squeeze of lime juice to taste.
• Divide vermicelli noodles between bowls. Pour over chicken laksa. • Tear over herb leaves. Serve with any remaining lime wedges.
