  1. In a bowl, mix the chicken with the teriyaki sauce. Set aside in the fridge to marinate for 15 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the noodles to pack instructions. Drain well, then toss with the sesame oil and soy sauce.
  3. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the broccoli. Cook for 5 mins, adding the mangetout for the final 3 mins. Drain and set aside.
  4. Heat a large griddle pan over a high heat until hot and almost smoking. Working in batches, griddle the chicken, pouring over any marinade left in the bowl, for 1-2 mins each side until fully cooked through.
  5. To serve, divide the noodles between plates and top with the veg and griddled chicken. Garnish with the chilli, spring onions and sesame seeds, and drizzle with a little extra sesame oil, if you like.
