2 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
16 ounces udon noodles
2 eggs, lightly beaten
10 cooked and peeled prawns
1 leek, finely sliced
1 red pepper, finely sliced
1 large green pepper, finely sliced
1.4 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced
2.8 ounces beansprouts
1 tablespoon chili oil, to taste
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
sea salt + white pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon toasted mixed sesame seeds
1 tablespoon crispy fried onions
1 tablespoon pickled ginger
Season the chicken and heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and fry until brown. Cook the noodles as per instructions and place in a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs, cooked prawns and chicken to the noodles and stir through so the noodles are thoroughly coated with the egg. Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat, add all the vegetables and stir-fry for 2–3 minutes. Add the noodle mixture to the pan with chili oil and soy sauce, and toss the ingredients for two minutes. Divide the noodles between two serving plates and garnish with the sesame seeds, crispy onions and pickled ginger.
