Chicken Chow Mien (Jamie Oliver)

I cooked this noodles for Ian's birthday. It's a routine in the family - besides cake, to have noodles on one's birthday
Very simple, fast to prepare and surprisingly yummy recipe Jamie has, knowing the minimum seasonings used

The recipe can be found in Jamie's YouTube video

What you need:
(with slight modification)

a pack of egg noodles
4 cloves of garlic, crushed
a thumb size of old ginger, sliced
1 large red chilli, sliced
1 boneless chicken breast, diced
a few shitake mushrooms, sliced
1 pack of bokchoy, sliced
a bunch of coriander leaves, use the stalks, cut
1 big stalks of spring onion, chopped
a pot of water
a few pinches of chicken stock powder
cooking oil, salt, light soya sauce, sesame oil, corn flour, a little water
large lime
  1. Bring a pot of water to boil, cook the noodle
  2. Halfway cooking, add in bokchoy, drain and set aside
  3. When cooled, mix in sesame oil to the noodles
  4. In a hot wok, heat cooking oil, add in chicken and cook til color changed
  5. Add in garlic, ginger, chilli, coriander stalks, spring onion, mix well and cook til fragrant
  6. Add in noodles and bokchoy
  7. Add in mushroom, some water, chicken stock powder, light soya sauce, mix well and cook til water bubbles
  8. Add in cornflour and immediately stir well
  9. Adjust taste and off heat
  10. Serve hot with a squeeze of juice of a large lime

  1. I didn't know JO also had a Chow Mien recipe! This sounds like something I would love for lunch.

  2. I was thinking that it's so ironic that we Asians are cooking an Asian recipe from JO hehe but it sure does look good!
