  • 1 bunch baby pak choy, cut lengthways into wedges

  • 200 g green beans, trimmed

  • 300 g chicken breast, cut into thin slices

  • 50 g rice stick noodles

  • 2 tsp peanut oil

  1. Brown the chicken in a large fry pan then set aside.

  2. Place the noodles in a large heatproof bowl. Pour over enough boiling water to cover. Set aside for 5 minutes to soften. Drain well. Divide among serving bowls.

  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over high heat. Add the laksa paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until aromatic. Add the coconut milk and stock and bring to a simmer. Add the browned chicken. Add the pak choy, mint and green beans and cook for a further 1 minute or until tender-crisp.

  4. Divide the laksa mixture among the bowls with the noodles. Top with bean sprouts and coriander. Serve with lime wedges.
