Total cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves 4-6


1 1/2 teaspoons chilli powder

3 tablespoons cornflour

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons oil

350 g (12 oz.) chicken fillets, thinly sliced

4 spring onions, thinly sliced

1 carrot, sliced

1 celery stick, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons mirin or sherry

500 g (1lb) Hokkien noodles, gently

pulled apart

2 tablespoons oyster sauce

1. Combine the chilli powder, the cornflour and salt and mix them well. Then heat the oil in a wok over very high heat.

Drain on paper towels and then remove the chicken from the wok.

3. Add the oyster sauce and 2 tablespoons of water; cover it and steam for about 2 to 4 minutes, or until all the noodles are tender.

4. Add all the chicken and the bok choy and toss them well. Cover and steam for about 30 seconds. Serve it immediately.
