  • 300g Amoy straight to wok udon noodles
  • 2 essential Waitrose British skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1cm slices
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 75g essential Waitrose Crunchy Peanut Butter
  • 1 pinch dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, cut into bite sized chunks
  • 20g fresh root ginger, finely shredded
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 200g pack cavolo nero, finely shredded


  1. Heat the noodles according to pack instructions and set aside. Meanwhile, toss the chicken with 1 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tsp cumin and let it sit for a minute or two. For the sauce, mix the remaining 1 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tsp cumin with the peanut butter and chilli flakes. Loosen with 5 tbsp just-boiled water.

  2. Heat 1⁄2 tbsp oil in a frying pan or wok, then fry the chicken over a high heat for 3-4 minutes, until golden and just cooked through. Scoop onto a plate and set aside.

  3. Keeping the heat high, add the remaining 1⁄2 tbsp oil, then fry the onion for 1 minute. Add the ginger and garlic to the pan, sizzle briefly, then tip in the cavolo nero, noodles and chicken. Turn everything over a few times in the pan using tongs. The cabbage should retain plenty of texture. Pour in the sauce, shake the pan a little, and serve immediately.
