A delicious stir fry combining fresh healthy Asian flavours! There is so much going on in this recipe with coriander and ginger and the gentle heat of chilli. The crunch of red pepper and the sticky sauce bind it all together. It looks great and best of all it's super healthy - proving that diet food doesn't have to be boring.

Large pan/wok to cook everything in

Large saucepan with boiling water to cook the noodles

Colander to drain the noodles

Tablespoon measure

Spoon to stir

This week, there are two original recipes on my newsletter which will make Christmas that little bit easier, and taste that much better! My Pork & Pickle Stuffing Balls and my Baileys Biscuits. The stuffing recipe is a great alternative to the traditional sage and onion - filled with pork, apple and chunky pickle, it has a real tang to it and is very easy and cheap to make. My very grown-up Baileys Biscuits have a good whack of alcohol and a delicious chewy, oat bite to them - naughtily moreish!

Throughout December, the theme for my newsletters is, not surprisingly, 'Christmas'! I have 3 great recipes for you this month, from my Grand Marnier Soufflé to Baileys Biscuits. So sign up for free today to get your recipes each week, along with valuable cooking tips for the festive season.

Put a large pan of salted boiling water on the hob then put a frying pan/wok on a high heat. Add a small pinch of salt and pepper to the sliced chicken and when the pan/wok is hot, put a teaspoon of oil in and start frying the chicken. Put the noodles into the pan of boiling water at this point and leave them on a high heat to boil for 5 minutes. Turn your attention back to the chicken and cook on a medium heat for 5 minutes. Move the pieces around the pan occasionally so that all sides are gently browned.

After the chicken has had 5 minutes add the pepper, spring onion, ginger, garlic & chilli to the pan/wok. Give everything a good stir and then check the noodles. They should be ready by now to drain - you want them to be cooked through but not mushy.

Add 4 tablespoons of oyster sauce, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar in with the chiicken. Stir thoroughly and allow to bubble for 1 minute.

Add the noodles to the chicken a spoonful at a time and mix through.

To serve simply divide between two plates or bowls and then sprinkle with some chopped fresh coriander.

I hope that you enjoy it!
