Ingredients

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into large chunks
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, grated
  • 6 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 6 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 limes, juiced, plus extra wedges to serve
  • 100g mangetout
  • 275g cooked egg noodles
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into thin strips or coarsely grated
  • ½ bunch of coriander, chopped
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds, (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the chicken in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the garlic, ginger, sesame oil, honey, soy sauce and lime juice. Add a third of this to the chicken and save the rest for the noodles. Mix everything together and chill overnight or for a few hours.

  • STEP 2

    Bring a saucepan of water to a simmer. Add the mangetout and cook for 1 min, then drain and rinse under cold water. Toss the cooked noodles with the mangetout, carrot, remaining marinade, coriander and sesame seeds.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the grill to medium. Thread the chicken onto three or four long skewers, put on a flat baking tray and grill for 12 mins, turning the skewers halfway, until cooked. Serve the skewers on top of a platter of the noodles with extra lime wedges for squeezing over.
