    Snowbunny Andorra's Note:

    From BBC's Chinese Food Made Easy, the best recent TV cookery show. Very simple to make, and tasty! I added a little more five-spice than the original recipe. Omit the chilli sauce if you wish, or add a little more to give it extra zing. If you don't have groundnut oil (peanut oil), use vegetable oil, NOT olive oil, which is too strong flavoured. Serves two as a main course, or four as a side dish.

      Cook the noodles in boiling water until al dente. Drain, rinse under cold water and drain again. Drizzle with a little sesame oil and toss.
    2. 2
      Place chicken in a bowl and toss with dark soy, five-spice powder and chilli sauce. Dust with cornflour.
    3. 3
      Heat a wok until smoking before adding the groundnut oil. Add chicken and cook, stirring, until golden brown and cooked through.
    4. 4
      Add red pepper, stir fry for a minute, then add onion and beansprouts, cooking for a further 30s. Stir in the noodles and season with light soy sauce, a dash of sesame oil and black pepper, to taste.

      Very, very good. Extremely easy to make and with a lot of flavour. Made exactly as stated. Maybe i'll try it with some more vegetables as a reviewer suggested as this recipe will certainly be made many more times. Thanks for posting.

      Extremely good and easy to make, just a little prep, then cook it off! I only had a green bell-pepper, so used that, and then also added finely sliced carrot (1), zucchini (3 small), and 3 small yellow pattypans, all finely sliced, because we like a lot of veg. A lovely meal, ideal for a midweek supper, thanks, Snowbunny! made for PAC Fall 2008.
