  1. To make the marinade, mix together the soy sauce, garlic and ginger, add the chicken and set aside. Allow to marinate for 30 minutes in the fridge if you have time.
  2. Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions. Drain well and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok or large frying pan and stir-fry the chicken and marinade for 2-3 minutes, or until cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  4. Add 1/2 tbsp oil to the pan (if necessary) and fry the onion, spring onions, pepper and broccoli for 3-4 minutes, or until the onion is soft and the pepper and broccoli are tender. Add the cooked chicken and noodles and continue to stir-fry until piping hot. Remove from the heat, add extra soy sauce to taste and serve immediately.
