  1. Whisk the eggs with 2 tbsp water. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Swirl the eggs into the pan and cook for 2 mins until set, flip over and continue to cook for 1 min. Tip the omelette onto a board and, when cool enough to handle, slice into strips and set aside.

  2. Heat the remaining oil in a large wok and stir-fry the chicken for 5 mins until browned, then add the ginger and garlic, and cook for a few mins. Scatter over most of the spring onions, reserving some to sprinkle on the top, followed by the sake or sherry and noodles. Give everything a good mix. Drizzle over the soy, stir through the shredded omelette, sprinkle over the reserved spring onions and serve.

Used chicken stock instead of sherry/sake and leeks instead of spring onions. Excellent and will definitely make again.

Really good! And so easy and quick if all ingredients are prepared before you start. Easy to adapt to serve 2 heartily, divide all ingredients by 3 and use 1 or 2 chicken breasts. I used udon noodles to really make this a main meal dinner to feed myself and my eternally hungery boyfriend!
