  1. Rub the chicken with the oil and ½ tsp Chinese five-spice; season. In a frying pan, fry the chicken for 5-6 mins on each side, until cooked through with no pink meat showing. Remove from the pan and set aside to rest, then thickly slice.
  2. Meanwhile, in a pestle and mortar, grind the ginger to a thick paste. In a large pan, combine the stock, ginger paste, Worcestershire and soy sauces, garlic, miso, mushrooms (reserving enoki for the final 2 mins) and the remaining five-spice. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 7 mins.
  3. Divide the carrot, greens and noodles between 4 bowls. Ladle over the broth and top with the chicken. Scatter over the spring onions and chilli.
