Pop your kettle on to boil. Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into small pieces. Trim the spring onion and thinly slice. Halve the chilli lengthways, deseed then finely chop. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all). Zest and halve the lime.
Heat a splash of oil in a large saucepan on medium heat. Add the pepper, garlic, chilli and half the spring onion. Stir and cook for 2 mins, then add the red Thai curry paste and stir together. TIP: Add less chilli if you don't like spice! After 1 minute, pour in the coconut milk and mix until smooth. Add the chicken stock paste with the boiling water from your kettle (see ingredients for amount) and bring to a simmer.
Add the peanut butter and a pinch of sugar (if you have some) to your pan. Simmer gently for 10 mins. Taste the laksa and add seasoning if you think it needs it - salt, pepper, sugar - whatever suits your taste!
Meanwhile, heat a splash of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the chicken pieces and lime zest. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir-fry until cooked through, 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling chicken and its packaging. When cooked, remove to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. IMPORTANT: The chicken is cooked when it is no longer pink in the middle.
When the laksa has been cooking for 10 mins, add in the egg noodle nests and prawns to the sauce. Cook until the noodles are soft enough to eat and the prawns are cooked through, about 4 mins. TIP: The noodles may soak up some of the coconutty liquid. If this is the case, just add a splash of water to get it back to a soupy consistency. IMPORTANT: The prawns are cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.
Add the chicken to the pan and simmer until the chicken is piping hot, 1-2 mins. Remove from the heat and add half the lime juice. Taste and add salt, pepper and more lime juice if you feel it needs it. Serve in big bowls topped with the coriander and the remaining spring onion. Enjoy!
