Recipe

  1. Remember to defrost your meat. Defrost your meat in the fridge and use within 24 hours, or in a microwave on ‘defrost’ directly before use.

    This recipe works perfectly with frozen meat. Check what you have in your freezer and defrost meat thoroughly before cooking. If using defrosted cooked meat, you can only reheat this meat once so only cook what you can eat.
  2. Place the noodles in an individual microwavable soup bowl or large mug then pour hot stock over the noodles and leave for 3 minutes.

  3. Add the chicken, carrot, peas, red pepper and spring onion. In a small bowl mix the cornflour, light soy sauce, 5-spice and 1 tbsp cold water. Pour the cornflour mixture over the noodles then mix everything together ensuring that the vegetables are evenly distributed throughout the bowl.

  4. Cover the bowl with cling film and microwave on High for 2 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking, until the chicken is piping hot. Leave to stand for 1 minute before serving.
