  1. Boil the noodles, following pack instructions, then drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the sesame oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat until very hot. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 6-7 mins until golden and crispy. Add the soy sauce and honey and heat for 30 secs until bubbling and the chicken is coated. Tip the contents of the pan into a bowl and set aside. Wipe out the pan with kitchen paper.
