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!

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Fry the chicken

    Heat a little oil in a wide frying pan and fry the chicken for 2 mins. 

    Stir in the BANG BANG PASTE then add the peppers and fry for 2 more mins. 

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

  • 2.

    Develop the flavours

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

    Add the spring onions (if using) and cook for 2 mins, or until the chicken is done, then turn off the heat.

  • 3.

    Cook the noodles

    Boil the noodles as per pack instructions. 

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

    Stir the CHILLI GARNISH into the chicken pan, then add the noodles and 2 tbsps of your reserved noodle water and toss them to coat them in the sauce. Add a little more cooking water to loosen the sauce into a nice consisitency if it's still a bit too thick (tongs are helpful here.)

  • 4.

    Serve the noodles with squeeze of a lime and some sesame seeds sprinkled over (if using).

Dawn - Sep 18, 2019

Cooked for friends and they loved it

Nyesha - Sep 17, 2019

Overall this was nice. When I first tasted this I wasn't very happy with the taste. It just didn't suit my taste buds, however after I ate some more I became more accustomed to the taste of it and it was actually quite nice. I think I just wasn't used to the coconut milk as I don't usually use it in my cooking. I am glad I hot it because the whole point of simply cook is to try new dishes.
