Quick Sticky Chicken Noodles Easy Food

Serves 2

2 nests of thin egg noodles
2 chicken fillets, chopped into strips
2 tsp cornflour
1 tsp Chinese five spice
Salt and black pepper
1 tbsp vegetable oil
60g mangetout, chopped
1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
4 spring onions, chopped
2 tbsp soy sauce
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce or hot chilli sauce

  1. Cook the noodles in boiling water according to the package instructions.
  2. In a bowl, toss the chicken with the cornflour, the five spice and some salt and black pepper.
  3. Heat the oil in a large wok or pan over a medium-high heat and stir-fry the chicken until golden, working in batches if necessary to avoid crowding the pan. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  4. Add the mangetout, red pepper and half of the spring onions to the same pan and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Return the chicken to the pan and add the soy sauce, lemon juice, honey and chilli sauce along with a splash of water. Allow to bubble for 2-3 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked through.
  6. Toss together with the noodles, divide between two bowls and scatter over the remaining spring onions to serve.
