150g of egg noodles

dash of toasted sesame oil

300g of chicken breast fillets sliced into strips

dash dark soy sauce

1 tsp five-spice powder

1 tsp chilli sauce

1 tbsp cornflour

1-2 tbsp groundnut oil

1 red pepper

1 large spring onion, sliced

2 tbsp light soy sauce

ground black pepper


Cook the noodles in a pan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes.  Drain and rinse under cold running water.  Drizzle with a dash of sesame oil and toss through to prevent noodles sticking to each other.

Place the chicken strips in a bowl and season with a dash of dark soy sauce, five spice powder and chilli sauce.  Mix well, then lightly dust the chicken strips with the cornflour.

Heat a wok until smoking and add the groundnut oil, then add the chicken and stir fry for 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through.

Add the red pepper and stir fry for one minute and then add the bean sprouts and spring onion and stir fry for 30 seconds.  Stir in the cooked noodles and season with the light soy sauce, a dash of sesame oil and freshly ground black pepper.
