Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts approx. 400g, skinless, cut into thin strips (approx.1cm)
  • 2 medium zucchinis courgettes, spiralized
  • 2 wholewheat noodle nests
  • 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes or less if you want less heat
  • 3 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 1 bay leaf
  • For the marinade:
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1.5 tablespoons Hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons oil olive or vegetable, plus 3 more for frying
  • 2/3 teaspoon fenugreek powder
  • 1/3 teaspoon less than half each onion granules, ginger powder, garlic powder
  • For serving: 2 finely chopped spring onions zest of 1 lime and a good drizzle of the juice

Instructions

  • Combine all the marinade ingredients, add the chicken strips and stir thoroughly. Set aside for 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime cook the noodles according to packet instructions (in salted water with the bay leaf). Drain, reserving some of the water (4-5 tablespoons). Set aside.
  • Spiralize the zucchini. Set aside.
  • In a large wok or frying pan heat up 3 tablespoons of oil, add the fresh ginger, garlic and chilli flakes, stir and fry for 30 seconds over a medium heat. Add the chicken (including any remaining marinade), stir and fry for about 3-4 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add the soy sauce, noodles, zoodles and a little water (from cooking the noodles), about 4-5 tablespoons. Stir thoroughly until all the ingredients have been heated through and coated in the sauce.
  • Remove from the heat, sprinkle the spring onions and lime zest over the top, give a good drizzle of the lime juice and serve.
