1 Put the chicken in a bowl with the lime juice and gochu­jang. Cover and leave to mar­i­nate in the fridge for an hour. Re­move from the fridge 10 min­utes be­fore cook­ing.

2 FOR THE CHILLI FISH SAUCE Mix all the in­gre­di­ents together and set aside.

3 FOR THE STIR-FRY Cook the rice noo­dles in a large pan of boil­ing wa­ter ac­cord­ing to the packet in­struc­tions. Drain, cool un­der cold run­ning wa­ter and set aside. Drain the chicken, dis­card the mari­nade, and pat the chicken dry with kitchen pa­per. Heat the oil in a wok un­til smok­ing, then throw in half the gar­lic, cook for a sec­ond, then add half the chicken and stir un­til browned, about 1–2 min­utes. Add half of all the veg­eta­bles, but not the chill­ies. Stir-fry for an­other 30 sec­onds, then add half the stock and chill­ies. Taste, sea­son with fish sauce and cook for a fur­ther 30 sec­onds to a minute, un­til the chicken is cooked through. Add half the herbs, mix and add half the noo­dles. Mix for an­other 30 sec­onds, and fin­ish with the juice of half a lime. Re­peat for the sec­ond bowl.
