Get Prepped

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 1/2 tsp salt for the noodles.

Trim and halve the green beans. Trim and thinly slice the spring onion.

Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).


 Stir-Fry the Mushrooms

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. 

Once hot, add the sliced mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Fry until starting to soften, 5-6 mins.

Stir in the garlic, cook for 1 min, then transfer the cooked veg to a medium bowl. Set aside.

Fry the Chicken

Pop the cornflour into a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Add the diced chicken to the bowl and toss to coat completely in the cornflour.

Put your (now empty) frying pan back on medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil if needed.

Once hot, add the chicken. Fry until golden brown on the outside and cooked through, 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw chicken and its packaging. It's cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Cook the Noodles and Beans

While the chicken cooks, add the noodles and green beans to the pan of boiling water. Cook until tender, 4 mins. 

Once cooked, drain in a sieve and run under cold water to stop them sticking together. 

Sauce Things Up

Once the chicken is cooked, add the cooked veg back into the pan.

Lower the heat to medium, then add the ketjap manis, rice vinegar, ketchup, sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for all three amounts). Stir to combine and simmer until the sauce has reduced slightly, 2-3 mins. 

Remove from the heat, then taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Add a splash of water if you feel it needs it.

Finish and Serve

Add the cooked noodles and beans to the chicken stir-fry and toss to coat well in the sauce.

Share the sticky chicken noodles between your bowls. Sprinkle over the spring onion to finish.
