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 there’s no pink meat and it’s piping hot!) as cooking equipment varies
Now, let's get started!
Boil a kettle
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat
Trim, then slice the spring onion[s] roughly
Once the pan is hot, add the diced chicken and ginger & garlic paste and cook for 2-3 min or until starting to brown
While the chicken cooks, add the medium egg noodles to a pot and cover with boiled water until fully submerged
Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 5-6 min or until cooked with a slight bite
Once cooked, drain and reserve a cup of the starchy noodle water
Once the chicken is starting to brown, add the sugar snap peas and cook for a further 2-3 min or until starting to soften and the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)
Meanwhile, add the smooth peanut butter, sriracha, chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!), honey, rice vinegar and soy sauce to a bowl
Add 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] water and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil and give everything a good mix up – this is your spicy peanut sauce
Once the chicken is cooked, add the spicy peanut sauce and drained noodles and give everything a good mix up – these are your spicy peanut chicken noodles
Tip: Add a splash of the reserved starchy noodle water if it's looking a little dry
Crush the peanuts in the bag with a rolling pin
Serve the spicy peanut chicken noodles and garnish with the crushed peanuts and sliced spring onions
