Method

  1. Pour a kettleful of boiling water over the noodles in a large heatproof bowl and set aside to soak. Mix the sweet chilli sauce, soy, lime juice, ginger and garlic in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok or deep frying pan over a high heat, and fry the chicken for 6-8 mins, stirring constantly, until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Heat another 1 tbsp oil in the pan, then fry the broccoli for 2-3 mins until starting to turn lightly golden at the edges. Add 3 tbsp of the noodle water and cook for 1 min to steam the broccoli. When the water has evaporated, stir in the stir-fry mix and fry for 2-3 mins until the veg is piping hot but still crunchy.
  4. Drain the noodles and add to the pan along with the cooked chicken; pour over the sauce. Cook, stirring, for 1-2 mins until everything is coated and the noodles are piping hot. Serve in bowls topped with spring onion and red chilli, and extra sweet chilli sauce and lime wedges, if you like.
