Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: Please make sure you cook your chicken thoroughly (until piping hot!) as cooking equipment varies
Now let's get started!
Boil a kettle
Add the medium egg noodles to a pot and cover them with boiled water until fully submerged
Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 2-3 min or until almost cooked
While the noodles are cooking, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat
Once hot, add the ginger & garlic paste and diced chicken breast and cook for 1-2 min or until starting to brown
Trim, then chop the spring onion[s] into large bite-sized pieces
Chop the Tenderstem broccoli in half
Once the chicken is starting to brown, add the chopped spring onion and cook for a further 3-4 min or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)
When the noodles are almost cooked, add the halved Tenderstem broccoli and cook for 2 min further or until tender with a slight bite
Once cooked, drain the noodles and Tenderstem and reserve a cup of the starchy noodle water
Meanwhile, add the cornflour to a bowl with 2 tsp [4 tsp] cold water and stir to dissolve
Add the Sriracha, dried chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!), tomato ketchup and soy sauce
Add 1 tsp [2 tsp] vegetable oil with a splash of the reserved starchy noodle water and a pinch of sugar and give everything a good mix up – this is your chilli sauce
Once the chicken is cooked, add the drained noodles and broccoli, chilli sauce and cashew nuts and stir it all together – these are your chilli chicken cashew noodles
Tip: Add a splash of the starchy noodle water if it's looking a little dry
Serve up your chilli chicken cashew noodles and let everyone tuck in
