  • 3 tbsp peanut oil

  • 1 red capsicum

  • 1 jar Hoisin sauce or Oyster Sauce (if Hoisin unavailable)
  • 1tsp cornflour

Fill the kettle and boil it.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and brown batches of chicken in the oil.

While the chicken is cooking, cut the broccoli and top and de-string the sugar snap peas. Put them in a heat-proof bowl and pour the boiling water over them.

Fill and re-boil the kettle.

Cut the capsicum into batons and add them to the pan with all of the chicken. Stir fry for 2 minutes and add Hoisin sauce.

Place hokkien noodles in a heat- proof bowl and cover with boiling water.

Mix the cornflour into the water and pour into the pan and bring to the boil to form a sauce.

Drain the vegetables and add them to the pan.

Drain the noodles and add to the pan and toss until all ingredients are covered in the sauce.
