1.Cut chicken in half lengthways; place in a medium bowl with garlic, coriander, half the chilli, and sauce; mix well.
2.Cook chicken on a heated oiled grill plate (or grill or barbecue), for 10 minutes, or until cooked through, turning halfway. Cool; then slice chicken thinly.
3.Meanwhile, thinly slice mangoes. Combine mango, onion, salad leaves, herbs and dressing in a large bowl. Add chicken; toss gently to combine. Season to taste.

Vietnamese salad dressing, or ‘nuoccham’, is as much a dipping sauce as it is a dressing.
