How to make it
- Begin by cutting the chicken breasts into strips. Mix well with the Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste and leave to marinade while you prepare the other ingredients.
- Cook noodles according to instructions then drain.
- We like to keep ginger in the freezer and then just grate off as much as we need when we need it. If using fresh, peel with a spoon (it’s easier than a knife) and either chop finely or grate.
- Separate the purple sprouting broccoli stems and florets. Chop the stems into small chunks and leave the florets whole or cut into bitesize chunks if necessary.
- Chop coriander stalks finely and roughly chop the leaves.
- Peel and finely dice the garlic.
- Roughly chop the spring onions.
- Wash and slice the carrot into thin discs.
- Cut the peas into small chunks.
- Heat a dry frying pan. Crush peanuts into chunky pieces and toast in pan (don’t burn).
- Heat a wok over a high heat and add a little vegetable oil.
- Once very hot, add the chicken and leave to take on some colour before stirring and browning all over (about 2-3 minutes only).
- Add the carrots and broccoli stems. Cook, stirring continuously for another 2-3 minutes.
- Next add the broccoli florets, peas, garlic and spring onions. Another 2-3 minutes moving it around constantly.
- Add the coriander stems and beansprouts and cook for another couple of minutes.
- Next add the grated ginger, sesame oil, soy sauce and fish sauce. Stir well.
- Stir through half of the toasted peanuts, noodles and coriander leaves just before serving.
- Serve with more toasted peanuts to sprinkle over the top and wedges of fresh lime.
