  1. Prepare the BBQ to hot or heat the grill to high. Soak 4 wooden skewers in water. ​ 
  2. Whisk together the honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, sesame seeds and ginger. ​ 
  3. Add half of the dressing to a large bowl, toss through the chicken and leave to marinate for 15 mins. ​ 
  4. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining dressing with the red chilli and lime juice. ​ 
  5. Cook the noodles according to pack instructions, drain into a colander and rinse under a cold tap. Shake the colander to remove as much water as possible. ​ 
  6. Tip the noodles into a bowl and toss through the chilli-infused dressing, cucumber, carrots, red pepper and spring onions. Set aside. ​ 
  7. Thread the chicken onto the 4 skewers.​ 
  8. Cook the skewers on the BBQ or under the grill for 15-20 mins, turning occasionally, until golden, charred and cooked throughout. ​ 
  9. Serve the noodles topped with the chicken skewers with extra wedges of lime on the side.

Tip The noodle salad can be made up to 24 hours in advance and stored, covered, in the fridge. You can also marinate the chicken for up to 24 hours in advance and BBQ just before you’re ready to serve.
