  1. To make the bags, cut four large pieces of parchment paper, each about 35cm/14in square. Cut the chicken into strips. Tip the vegetables and stir-fry sauce into a large bowl and mix well.

  2. To fill the bags, add the chicken and noodles and mix well. Pile a quarter of the mixture in the middle of each piece of parchment paper. Make a parcel by folding two sides of the paper into the centre and folding them together to seal, then folding and tucking under the cut paper edges. Repeat with the rest of the paper and ingredients, then put them in the fridge (they will keep there for up to a day).

  3. Microwave the parcels one at a time on High (850W) for 5-6 minutes. Serve with soy sauce for splashing.

Oh come on. We don't need a recipe to assemble various stuff straight out of a jar or ready prepared packet. I come here to find out how to cook from scratch so I can get away from stuff like this.
