Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Pulled Hoisin Chicken & Sesame Noodles

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat

Once hot, add the chicken thighs with a generous pinch of both salt and pepper and cook for 3 min on each side or until they're browned

2 Pulled Hoisin Chicken & Sesame Noodles

Meanwhile, peel (scrape the skin off with a teaspoon) and finely chop (or grate) the ginger

Cut a few chilli rounds (set them aside for garnish) then cut the remaining red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

3 Pulled Hoisin Chicken & Sesame Noodles

Boil a kettle

Once the chicken has browned, reduce the heat to medium-low and add a splash of water and cook, covered for 10 min or until the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)

4 Pulled Hoisin Chicken & Sesame Noodles

While the chicken is cooking, add the wholewheat noodles to a pot and cover them with boiled water until they're fully submerged

Bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 5-7 min or until tender with a slight bite, then drain and set aside in a bowl and reserve the pot for later

5 Pulled Hoisin Chicken & Sesame Noodles

Rip the leaves off the spring greens, discard the tough stalks, then layer the leaves over each other, roll them up and slice into thin strips

Trim, then slice the spring onions finely

6 Pulled Hoisin Chicken & Sesame Noodles

Once the chicken is cooked, remove the pan from the heat and shred the chicken apart with two forks – this technique is known as 'pulling'

Once pulled, return the pan to a medium heat and add the chopped ginger, chopped chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!), hoisin sauce, half the soy sauce and 50ml [75ml] water and cook for 3-4 min or until the chicken is coated in a sticky sauce – this is your pulled hoisin chicken

7 Pulled Hoisin Chicken & Sesame Noodles

Meanwhile, return the reserved pot to a medium heat with a drizzle of vegetable oil

Once hot, add the sliced spring greenschopped garlic and a generous pinch of salt and cook for 1 min or until starting to wilt

Add a splash of water and cook, covered, for 2 min or until completely wilted, then stir in the cooked noodles, toasted sesame oil and remaining soy sauce – these are your sesame noodles
