Cashew Chilli Chicken Noodles

Like it spicy? These sweet chilli noodles are sure to pack a punch. You'll team them with chicken, broccolini and crunchy cashews, before serving in the middle of the table – help-yourself style. 

Easy and adaptable- add snow peas, beans, carrots - any vegetable you like! We like ours with a drizzle of Kewpie Mayo :) 

Serves 3-4  Time: 20 mins

Noodles with Cashews and Broccolini in a wok

Ingredients : 


4tsp sriracha hot chilli sauce 
500g diced chicken 
1 heaped tsp cornflour
1 tsp chilli flakes
15ml soy sauce
15ml soy sauce 
4 egg noodle nests 
300g broccolini
2tsp ginger & garlic paste
1 tsp tomato ketchup
25g cashew nuts 
1 spring onion

  1. Cook the noodles according to packet instructions
  2. While the noodles are cooking, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat. Once hot, add the ginger & garlic paste and diced chicken thigh, then cook for 4 min or until starting to brown
  3. Trim, then chop the spring onion[s] into large bite-sized pieces Chop the broccolini. Once the chicken is starting to brown, add the chopped spring onion and cook for a further 6-7 min or until the chicken is cooked through
  4. When the noodles are almost cooked, add the halved broccolini and cook for 2 min further or until tender with a slight bite
  5. Once cooked, drain the noodles & broccolini and reserve a cup of the starchy noodle water
  6. Meanwhile, add the cornflour to a bowl with 4 tsp cold water and stir to dissolve. Add the sriracha, chilli flakes (can't handle the heat? Go easy!), soy sauce and tomato ketchup. Add 2 tsp vegetable oil with a splash of the reserved starchy noodle water and a pinch of sugar and give everything a good mix up – this is your chilli sauce
  7. Once the chicken is cooked, add the drained noodles & broccolini, chilli sauce and cashew nuts and stir it all together – these are your chilli chicken cashew noodles. Tip: Add another splash of the starchy noodle water if it's looking a little dry. Serve up your chilli chicken cashew noodles and let everyone tuck in
