To marinate the meat

Combine the sambal with all the other ingredients up to and including the garlic, mix well. Mix the chicken with the marinade, cover and chill/marinate for at least 1 hr.

Chicken skewers

Place the glass noodles in a bowl, pour boiling water over the top so that the noodles are covered, leave to soak for approx. 5 mins. Drain the water, rinse the noodles in cold water, drain, cut into pieces with scissors.


Thoroughly mix the soy sauce with all the other ingredients up to and including the sambal, set aside.
