A delicious stir fry combining fresh healthy Asian flavours! There is so much going on in this recipe with coriander and ginger and the gentle heat of chilli. The crunch of red pepper and the sticky sauce bind it all together. It looks great and best of all it's super healthy - proving that diet food doesn't have to be boring.

Put a large pan of salted boiling water on the hob then put a frying pan/wok on a high heat. Add a small pinch of salt and pepper to the sliced chicken and when the pan/wok is hot, put a teaspoon of oil in and start frying the chicken. Put the noodles into the pan of boiling water at this point and leave them on a high heat to boil for 5 minutes. Turn your attention back to the chicken and cook on a medium heat for 5 minutes. Move the pieces around the pan occasionally so that all sides are gently browned.

After the chicken has had 5 minutes add the pepper, spring onion, ginger, garlic & chilli to the pan/wok. Give everything a good stir and then check the noodles. They should be ready by now to drain - you want them to be cooked through but not mushy.

Add 4 tablespoons of oyster sauce, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar in with the chiicken. Stir thoroughly and allow to bubble for 1 minute.

Add the noodles to the chicken a spoonful at a time and mix through.

To serve simply divide between two plates or bowls and then sprinkle with some chopped fresh coriander.

I hope that you enjoy it!
