Bring a medium pan of water to the boil and add the noodles.

As you will be adding them to the wok to cook further you don’t want to overcook them before adding to the stir fry.

In a bowl mix together the peanut butter, sweet chilli sauce and soy and 2 tablespoons of water to make a runny sauce. Set aside.


Heat the oil in a wok over a high heat and add the chicken strips and cook for just a minute until starting to turn golden. 

Stir in the paste and cook for a few minutes more before adding the leek and broccoli and tossing well with the chicken and paste. 

Cook for 4 minutes stirring regularly.


Add the noodles to the wok and toss well with the vegetables and heat through for just a minute. 

Pour over the peanut sauce and give everything a final mix and cook through for a minute before sprinkling over half of the chopped peanuts. 

Serve in bowls sprinkled with extra peanuts and wedges of lime for squeezing over.
