A brightly coloured dish featuring tender chicken and crunchy bell peppers with wok-tossed noodles in a coconutty peanut sauce. Red chilli, coriander and a squeeze of lime juice bring it all to life and put the “bang” into the dish! We've kept it to a zingy but enjoyable heat level for all. Feel free to add some extra chopped chillies on top for aesthetics and more spiciness, if desired!

    Mix in the coconut milk and bring it to a gentle boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer.

    Develop the flavours

    Add the GARLIC & COCONUT PASTE and peanut butter and mix well.

  • 3.

    Cook the noodles

    Boil the noodles as per pack instructions.

    Collect a 2 tbsp of water from the noodle pan with a mug, then drain and rinse them under cold water.

    Stir the CHILLI GARNISH into the chicken pan, then add the noodles and 1-2 tbsps (or more, if necessary to loosen the sauce) of your reserved noodle water and toss to coat them. (Tongs are helpful here.)

Yet another amazing recipe from SimplyCook. Easy to make and so tasty. We used 400g of fresh egg noodles and full fat coconut milk, everything else, including the spring onions exactly as suggested. The only thing we didn't use was lime juice. We really enjoyed this meal and will definitely make it again.
