2 car­rots, peeled then cut into thin match­sticks or grated 2-3 spring onions, thinly sliced 350g fresh or dried egg noo­dles (or your favourite Asian noo­dles)

1-2 ta­ble­spoons sweet chilli sauce (op­tional)

1 lemon, cut into wedges 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.

In a medium, heat-proof bowl, pour boil­ing wa­ter over noo­dles and use a fork to sep­a­rate strands then drain im­me­di­ately (or cook ac­cord­ing to packet instructions). Add drained noo­dles to wok/pan, along with mee goreng paste, soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce. Stir­fry for 1 minute to com­bine. Re­turn chicken and veg­eta­bles to wok/pan and toss for about 1 minute, un­til heated through.

Roughly slice omelette and scat­ter over mee goreng.

To serve, di­vide chicken and veg­etable mee goreng be­tween bowls, top with a hand­ful of shred­ded let­tuce, a driz­zle of sweet chilli sauce (if us­ing) and serve with lemon wedges for squeez­ing.
