  1. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions. Once cooked, drain the noodles and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan until hot and stir-fry the chicken for 4-5 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Add a little more oil to the pan (if necessary) and stir-fry the Tenderstem, red pepper and onion over a high heat for about 3 minutes, or until they are starting to soften a little.
  4. Add the cooked chicken, garlic, chili and ginger and fry for a further 2 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl mix the peanut butter and soy sauce together, then pour into the wok, stirring well to coat everything.
  6. Stir through the cooked noodles and serve immediately.

Cook's tips

The crunchy peanut butter gives an extra depth of flavour to the recipe, but if you suffer from a peanut allergy or don't like peanuts you can leave it out.
