Spicy chicken sesame Noodles


(Recipe serves 4)

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 inch piece ginger, chopped
  • 2 chillies, sliced
  • 100g broccoli, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 200g mushrooms, sliced
  • 480g chicken breast, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tsp sriracha 
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 4 portions wholegrain vermicelli noodles (I used 160g) 
  • Sesame seeds


  1. Start by mixing the sesame oil, fish sauce, soy sauce, sriracha, lime juice and some black pepper in a bowl then set aside. 
  2. Cook the broccoli in a frying pan/wok with the coconut oil. Fry this on a medium heat for 5 minutes before adding the mushrooms and chicken.
  3. Cook these for another 5-6 minutes until the chicken is nearly cooked (this timing depends on how thin/thick your chicken is cut, so make sure you don’t over/undercook it!). Meanwhile, cook your noodles according to the packet instructions – mine had to soak in boiling water for 5 minutes.
  4. Now add in the garlic, ginger and chillies and your sauce to your pan. Mix 1 tsp cornflour with 2 tsps water and also add to the pan.
  5. Cook this for a minute on a high heat to thicken the sauce.
  6. Turn off the heat and stir in your noodles well until they are coated in the sauce. Enjoy hot with a sprinkle of sesame seeds on top!
