Calories per serving

225g dried or fresh egg noodles
1 tbsp sesame oil, plus 1 tsp
100g boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into fine shreds
2½ tbsp groundnut oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
50g mangetout
Mangetout with papaya & beansprouts on a white plate, finely shredded
50g Parma ham or cooked ham, finely shredded
2 tsp light soy sauce
2 tsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp Shaoxing rice wine or dry Sherry
½ tsp freshly ground white pepper
½ tsp golden caster sugar
2 spring onions
Spring onions, finely chopped

For the marinade

2 tsp light soy sauce
2 tsp Shaoxing rice wine or dry Sherry
1 tsp sesame oil
½ tsp freshly ground white pepper


  1. Cook the noodles in a large pan of boiling water for 3-5 mins, then drain and put them in cold water. Drain thoroughly, toss them with 1 tbsp of the sesame oil and set aside.
  2. Combine the chicken with all the marinade ingredients and ½ tsp salt, mix well and then leave to marinate for about 10 mins.
  3. Heat a wok over a high heat. Add 1 tbsp of the groundnut oil and, when it is very hot and slightly smoking, add the chicken shreds. Stir-fry for about 2 mins and then transfer to a plate. Wipe the wok clean. Reheat the wok until it is very hot, then add the remaining groundnut oil. When the oil is slightly smoking, add the garlic and stir-fry for 10 secs. Then add the mangetout and ham, and stir-fry for about 1 min.
  4. Add the noodles, soy sauces, rice wine or Sherry, pepper, sugar, spring onions and 1 tsp salt. Stir-fry for 2 mins. Return the chicken and any juices to the noodle mixture. Stir-fry for about 3-4 mins or until the chicken is cooked. Add 1 tsp sesame oil and give the mixture a few final stirs. Put on a warm platter and serve immediately.
