  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Whisk the gochujang paste with 2 tbsp soy sauce, the oil, garlic and a pinch of sugar. Pour over the chicken in a roasting tin; turn to coat. Roast for 35-40 mins, turning halfway, until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over a high heat. Add the sweetcorn, stirring until it stops steaming. Use a spatula to press down on the corn for 30 secs. Stir and repeat for 6-7 mins until charred. Season with black pepper and set aside.
  3. Cook the noodles to pack instructions, then run under cold water to cool. Add to a bowl with the carrot and cucumber, and most of the spring onions.
  4. Remove the chicken from the bones and chop. Pour the tin juices into a jug, then whisk in the rest of the soy sauce, lime zest and juice. Add to a mixing bowl with the chicken and sweetcorn. Mix well and scatter with the remaining spring onions to serve.
