  • 400 g raw chicken breast
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 15 g raw ginger
  • 30 g oyster sauce
  • 30 g soy sauce
  • 5 g honey
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1 carrot
  • 100 g beansprouts
  • 1/3 a small white cabbage
  • 300 g rice noodles (cooked weight)


  • Start by finely chopping the ginger and garlic. In a container, mix this with the chicken, oyster sauce, soy sauce, honey, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil and black pepper and set in the fridge for a few hours (or overnight if possible) to marinate.
  • Before preparing to cook, take the chicken out of the fridge so that it starts to come to room temperature. 
  • Julienne the carrot and pepper into small match sticks and slice the cabbage into rough 1cm square pieces and set aside.
  • On a medium-high heat, cook the chicken in the marinade in a wok for around 5 minutes until cooked through.
  • Add the carrot, pepper and cabbage and cook for a further 4 minutes before adding the beansprouts for 3 minutes.
  • Lastly, add the cooked rice noodles and stir fry for around 3 minutes and serve in a bowl. If you have dry rice noodles, follow the instructions to make 300g of cooked weight noodles.
