Chicken Chow Mein

This was a hot favourite at our taster day and I think it is every bit as nice as the real thing and what's even better is that it's all fresh ingredients and probably about 100% healthier than a takeaway version.

Serves 4
1/2 syn on Extra Easy

4 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp hot chilli sauce
2 tsp chinese rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
4 crushed garlic cloves
2cm piece ginger grated
1tsp chinese five-spice powder
3 chicken breasts diced/sliced
200g dried egg noodles 
bag of stir fry veg
spring onions
1 level tbsp sweet chilli sauce
4 tbsp dark soy sauce
chilli flakes

Mix together light soy sauce, hot chilli sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger and five-spice powder.  Add the chicken and marinate for 10 minutes.

Cook the noodles as per the packet instructions and drain.

Spray a large wok or frying pan with frylight and add the chicken and stir fry for 5 minutes until lightly browned.  Add all the vegetables and stir fry for 5 minutes.

Add the noodles, sweet chilli sauce and dark soy sauce and cook for 5 minutes.
