Gok Chow Mein

 Serves: 2


1 large nest of thick egg noodles

½ white onion, cut into julienne

½ clove chopped garlic 

1 chicken breast, poached in soy sauce and shredded (see note below)

3 spring onions cut into julienne

¼ carrot cut into julienne

6 chestnut mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

8-10 sugar snap peas, cut into julienne

1/5 red pepper cut julienne

Handful of bean sprouts

1 tbsp light soy

1.5 tbsp dark soy

1 tbsp oyster sauce

1 tbsp honey

½ tsp garlic granules 

Salt and white pepper (to taste)

Dash of sesame oil

1 tbsp rice bran oil

To serve:

Spring onion and chilli

Chilli oil


1. If using dried noodles, rehydrate them in very warm water. Drain and leave to cool - you can toss in a little oil to stop them from sticking

2. Fry off the white onion on a high heat to char a little

3. Add the garlic and chicken and cook through for another minute

4. Add all the other vegetables, except the bean sprouts. Cook for 30 seconds - 1 minute

5. Add the noodles and cook to char slightly

6.  Add all the liquids, garlic granules and the bean sprouts and fry for 1-2 mins

7. Finish with the spring onions, sliced chillies, sesame and chilli oil


To poach the chicken breast, place into a pan and cover with 500ml boiling water. Add 4 tbsp dark soy sauce and simmer for approximately 7-8 minutes or until cooked through.

Drain and shred the meat.
