Step 1

Cook the noodles in a pan of boiling water for 2-3 minutes, or according to packet instructions. Drain, then rinse under cold water and drain again.

Step 2

Place the chicken strips in a bowl and season with the dark soy sauce and the five spice powder. Mix well, and then lightly dust with the corn flour.

Step 3

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

Step 4

Add the red pepper and stir fry for 1 minute, 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 pepper.


If you use the “straight to the wok” instant noodles, miss out step 1 and throw them in from the packet in step 4.
