    Trust me it’s pretty darn easy, so follow along and soon you will be a master chef in making Vietnamese rice bowls at home too.

    Vietnamese Chicken Vermicelli Bowls

    What makes these rice bowls so good is the marinade.


    • You will want to make two marinades, one for the chicken and one for the sauce that you will serve alongside these bowls.
    • Fresh lemongrass is very important here for the chicken marinade, it gives it that really intense lemon taste. So be sure to get your hands on a few stocks that you will simply chop and place into the marinade.
    • The longer you marinade the chicken the better. If your making it for dinner then simply marinate it in the morning or the night prior. Then basically the rest of the dish can be pulled together in less than 30 minutes. Easy peasy!


    Feel free to add  some “beans sprouts” alongside the julienne carrots, cucumber and the shredded iceberg lettuce if desired.

    I would have for this recipe however my market did not have them this time around.

    Then besides the marinades you will want to julienne 2 large carrots and one large english cucumber and some shredded iceberg lettuce to serve alongside the serving sauce.

    Note: If you like a bit more heat to your vermicelli rice bowls, go ahead and serve along with some “hot chili sauce” or if you prefer a sweeter dish try a “sweet chili sauce”. This recipe was inspired by: Recipe Tin Eats
