A quick and easy mid-week dinner, who doesn't love chewy textured noodles in an aromatic zingy broth? Extra condiment such as fish sauce, toasted chilli flakes, crushed peanuts and fried garlic can be added at the table

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4


for the broth:

Place stock and 1.2L of water in a large-sized pot over a high heat.

Add all the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and let infuse for 20 mins before straining and discarding the solids.

for the minced lemongrass chicken: 

While the stock is cooking, make the minced lemongrass by heating 2 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger, black pepper and lemongrass and cook for 2-3 minutes until fragrant and lightly coloured. Add the chicken mince, breaking it up with a wooden spoon and cook for 3-4 mins or until slightly browned. Set aside until needed.
