Author Notes: This Recipe is a favourite of mine; it is so flavourful yet still really good for you with lots of vegetables! I usually use pre-cooked chicken as I hate touching raw meat, but I will write the recipe as if you are making everything from scratch! I know it has a lot of ingredients but trust me, it's worth it!Heather Adamson

Serves: 2

  • 250g Boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 400g Can drained chickpeas
  • 1/2 Courgette cut into chunks
  • 1 Onion cut into chunks
  • 4 Button mushrooms quartered
  • 2 teaspoons Rapeseed/canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon Minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon Oregano
  • Few drops Tabasco
  • 1 cup Water with 1/2 low salt chicken stock cube
  • Seasoning
  • 1 Nest (50g) buckwheat noodles
  • 100g Finely shredded cabbage
  • 1/2 Courgette finely shredded
  1. Heat oil in a wok and add the chicken. Sauté for 5 minutes, turning until browned, before adding onion, mushroom, courgette, garlic, cumin, coriander, oregano, red pepper and tobasco. Stir-fry for 3 minutes over a medium heat before adding the chickpeas and pouring in the stock. Season to taste and bring to boil. Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook noodles in boiling water for 4 minutes. For the last 2 minutes, add the cabbage and courgette to a steamer and place on top of the noodle pot to steam. Drain noodles over the cabbage and courgette and divide amongst two bowls. Top with chilli chicken and broth.
  3. A little hint; it tastes so much better when eaten with chopsticks. But then in my opinion, so does everything!!
