Bring a full kettle to the boil.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large wok or fry-pan on medium-high heat. Lightly whisk eggs in a small bowl and season with salt. Add eggs to wok/pan, mix with a wooden spoon to break them up then let eggs set as an omelette, about 1 minute. Set aside on a plate. Wipe out pan with paper towels and return to medium heat with a drizzle of oil. Pat chicken dry with paper towels, cut into 1cm-thick strips and season with salt. Cook chicken for 3-4 minutes, until browned all over and just cooked through. Set aside in a large bowl. Keep pan on heat.

Return chicken and vegetables to wok/pan and toss for about 1 minute, until heated through.
Roughly slice omelette and scatter over mee goreng.
