  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 3 spring onions


  1. Boil the egg nests for four minutes then drain and plunge into cold water. Once cool. Pop back into a bowl at a tiny bit of oil then mix so the noodles are coated. This will stop them sticking together in the wok.
  2. Heat a large frying pan or wok, then add a splash of oil. Pop in the chicken and cooking until golden, this will take around three minutes. Add in the onion and garlic and toss for a minute, then the noodles, dark and light soy, then add in the bean sprouts and mix well. Finally, add a small amount of sugar to taste, some sesame oil and lastly some spring onions. Cook for a further 30 seconds, then serve up.
