    My version, adapted from the series 'Chinese Food Made Easy' - this is now my favourite stir-fry and tastes as good as a takeaway! This seems like a faff, but once you've made it a few times and have all the ingredients to hand, it's a breeze! Definitely worth a go!

    Serves 2 (very generous portions - can easily serve 3)

    Syns - 0.5 per serving

    Ingredients
    1 tbsp grated fresh root ginger
    1 red chilli, de-seeded, finely chopped
    5 fresh shiitake mushrooms (or normal mushrooms), sliced
    2 tsp ground turmeric
    1 red pepper, de-seeded and sliced
    1 handful julienned carrot strips
    Pack of asparagus and baby corn, chopped
    226g chicken breast or thigh (raw weight), boiled and sliced (HEX B)
    250g/9oz dried vermicelli rice noodles, pre-soaked in hot water for 10 minutes and drained (found in Tesco ethnic section or just use egg noodles, cooked)
    1 tsp crushed dried chillies
    2 tbsp light soy sauce
    2 tbsp oyster sauce (1 syn)
    1 tbsp clear rice vinegar or cider vinegar
    1 free-range egg, beaten
    2 spring onions, sliced lengthways


    Method

    Prepare all the ingredients in advance - chop all the veg and cook the chicken, get the noodles on (if using the ones that need to soak for 10 mins)

    1. Spray a wok with Frylight and heat until very hot, then stir fry the ginger, chilli, mushrooms and turmeric for a few seconds.

    2. Add the red pepper, carrots, asparagus, baby corn. Add some boiling water a little bit at a time to help create steam and cook the veg. If your wok has a lid, cover it and let steam for a few minutes or until the veg is how you like it. Add the cooked chicken and mix.

    3. Add the noodles to the wok and toss for 1-2 minutes, then season with the chillies, soy sauce, oyster sauce and vinegar. Stir well to combine.

    4. Pour the beaten egg into the wok and stir gently for one minute, or until the egg is cooked through. Season with a dash of sesame oil (optional - add 2 syns per tsp), then pile the stir-fry onto a serving plate and garnish with the sliced spring onions.
