    This was good- even using the chicken breasts I had inadvertently purchased rather than thighs. It was very time-consuming to prep all of the ingredients for the marinade and dressing. However, the rest of the meal comes together quickly after the elements are made.

    This was fabulous but quite time-consuming. I've been to Vietnam and this took me straight back there. The recipe doesn't say what to do with the coriander leaves, only the stalks, but it seemed pretty obvious to chuck it in the salad with the mint. The only thing I'd change is that Vietnamese noodle dishes tend to only have a small amount of meat, so I'd halve the chicken and marinade. Incidentally, this would save a lot of time, as grating 40g of ginger takes a looooong time!
