Morgenster Extra Virgin Olive Oil for frying
Mix all the ingredients listed for the marinade. Leave to stand.
Place the chicken strips in a large flat dish, lightly coat with cornflour. Pour over half the marinade over the chicken and toss. Leave to marinate for about 20 minutes.
Heat a wok, add the Morgenster extra virgin olive oil and fry the chicken in small batches. The oil must not be too hot as the chicken will burn. Place chicken in dish and keep warm.
Fry the carrots and pepper in olive oil for a few minutes, add the broccoli, spring onions, ginger and chilli and cook for a further 2 minutes. Stir through the remainder of marinade, add the warm chicken and toss.
Serve on a bed of cooked noodles, with a wedge of lime on the side for squeezing over, and decorate with chopped fresh coriander and nuts.
