Fill and boil your kettle. Halve the pepper and remove the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips. Trim the green beans then chop into thirds.
Add the noodles to a saucepan, cover with boiling water and pop on medium high heat. Simmer until tender, 4 mins. Drain in a colander, drizzle with oil and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan on high heat. Add the diced chicken, season with salt and pepper and stir-fry until golden, 4-5 mins. Add the pepper and green beans. Stir-fry until the chicken is cooked, another 5-6 mins. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Lower the heat to medium, stir in the ketjap manis, 1 tbsp water per person, the chow mein paste and garnish. Stir-fry for 1 minute to dissolve.
Add the noodles and stir through until piping hot. TIP: Add a splash of water if you feel it needs loosening up.
Serve the chicken chow mein in bowls. Enjoy!
