Crispy wok fried egg noodles with warming spices and chicken, perfect for a Friday night meal.

  • 3-4 shallots

  • 110g boneless skinless chicken thighs, finely sliced

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

  • ½ clove garlic, finely chopped

  • 2 cups Chinese leaf, finely sliced

  • 1 medium carrots, finely sliced

  • 225g fresh lo mein egg noodles

  • Handful bean sprouts

  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced

The marinade

  • Pinch salt

  • Pinch sugar

  • 1 tsp cornstarch

  • 1 tsp vegetable oil

  • 1 tsp water

The Spice Mix

  • 1 tbsp curry powder

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp coriander powder

  • ½ tsp turmeric

The Sauces

  • ½ tablespoon shaoxing wine (or dry sherry cooking wine)

  • ½ tablespoon soy sauce

  • ½ teaspoon dark soy sauce

  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil

  • Pinch of salt

  • Pinch of sugar

Preparation

  • Thinly slice the chicken thighs and season with salt and sugar. Place the chicken in a bowl and add the cornstarch and water. Massage through with your hands, then add the oil and mix well.

  • Finely slice the carrots, spring onion, and shallots. Make your wok clock on a plate- carrots at 12, then your shallots, then your garlic, noodles, chinese cabbage, and finally the spring onion and beansprouts.

Cooking

  • Place the vegetable oil into a smoking hot wok and add the chicken. Stir fry the chicken for a few minutes and remove. Add the veg to the wok, working around the wok clock and giving each veg 30 seconds to cook before adding the next.

  • Add the noodles and toss through until they soften a little, then add the chinese cabbage and fold through.

  • Now it is time to add the spices and toss through. Followed by the sauces. Mix well.

  • To finish off add the beansprouts for a few seconds, and serve.

  • Top the dish with spring onions and sliced chilis (if you are brave!)
