It’s time to cook! Firstly, fry the chicken, it shouldn’t need any oil and will cook in about 5 minutes.

Now remove chicken from the pan (but leave the juices), add a little olive oil, turn up heat and stir fry all veg for around 2 minutes. Now’s when you should start the omelette if you’re having one.

Next, return the chicken to the pan and add the 5 spice with a good squeeze of lime. Cook noodles if dried.

Now add coriander and noodles, heating for around a minute. Now’s the time for cashews if you’re using them.

Plate it up as soon as possible, noodles below and veg on top. Add light soy sauce to taste (Just under 1tbsp. per person).

To serve, top it with some sesame seeds and a light drizzle of sesame oil, a good wedge of lime to the side is also essential.
