  • chicken stock 1.25 litres
  • ginger a thumb-sized piece, shredded
  • red chilli 1, deseeded and sliced
  • garlic 1 clove, thinly sliced
  • soy sauce 1 tbsp
  • skinless chicken breasts 2
  • flavourless oil 1 tsp
  • egg noodles 300g
  • pak choi 1, quartered lengthways
  • kale 2 handfuls
  • coriander a small bunch, chopped
  • red onion ½, very thinly sliced
  • lime 1, juiced


  • Step 1

    Put the chicken stock into a large pan with ¾ of the ginger and red chilli, all of the garlic and the soy sauce, and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer gently for 15 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, put the chicken breasts between two pieces of clingfilm and gently tap with a rolling pin until an even 1cm thickness. Season well and drizzle with a little oil. Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat and cook the chicken for 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through and charred. Rest for 5 minutes on a plate under foil, then slice.

  • Step 3

    Add the noodles and pak choi to the broth, and simmer for 2 minutes, then add the kale and simmer for a further minute.

  • Step 4

    Use tongs to divide the noodles and veg between 3 wide bowls. Ladle over the broth, divide the chicken and put on top with the remaining ginger and chilli, and sprinkle over the coriander, red onion and lime juice.
