  1. Bring a large pot with lightly salted water to a rolling boil. Drop the noodles in a few at a time and return to the boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the noodles are cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain; return to the pot.
  2. While the noodles are cooking, whisk the chicken broth, ginger, soy sauce, peanut butter, honey, chilli oil and garlic in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to the boil, whisking until the peanut butter has melted. Pour the sauce over the noodles. Add the chicken and red pepper; toss until the noodles are evenly coated in the sauce. Sprinkle with spring onions, chopped peanuts and fresh coriander leaves to serve.
