  2. Laksa-inspired ‘chicken’ noodle soup

    Sip and slurp your way through this noodle soup. It takes inspiration from the Malaysian laksa dish – packed with big flavours of lemongrass, ginger, garlic and fresh chilli. Those aromatics are complemented by creamy coconut milk, making a delicious broth that’s poured over What the Cluck ‘chicken’ pieces, noodles and veg to create a deliciously comforting bowlful.
