Easy Wok

Thanks to my careful observational skills, whilst a friend was cooking dinner for me, I managed to make a mental note of the cooking process (and ensured he wasn't trying to poison me), for this simple yet tasty meal. It requires hardly any preparation and the cooking time is only about 15-20 minutes. Which all makes for the perfect recipe and leaves more time for the more important things in life, like actually eating it.


Serves 2

1tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, sliced
1 courgette, sliced
1 sweet red pepper, sliced
2 chicken breast fillets, sliced
1 head of broccoli, florets sliced in half
2 tbsp Soy Sauce
3 tbsp oyster sauce
Chinese Spices (Schwartz's Chinese 5 Spice is a good mix)
Dried egg noodles

Let's get making:

1. Saute the onion, courgette and red pepper in a wok.
2. Add the chicken and cook until browned.
3. Stir in soy sauce, oyster sauce and Chinese spice. Add the broccoli florets and cover to steam for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. In a pan of boiling water, cook the dried egg noodles, following packet instructions (usually 4 minutes) and then drain.
5. Mix the chicken and vegetables with the noodles and serve.

It really is that easy!


  1. I'm all for quick and easy, especially after work. And, I'm not exactly the best cook. So this looks like a good bet for me.

  2. It is super easy, you can't go wrong and in just 20 minutes, dinner is done. Perfect :)
