    About this recipe: This stew is made from cooking chicken in sesame oil with ultra-thin noodles. If you can't find ultra-thin noodles, soba noodles or rice will work just as well. This recipe is quick, easy and very satisfying.

    Serves: 4 

    • 675g bone-in chicken, cut into pieces
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 175ml rice wine
    • 175ml toasted sesame oil
    • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
    • 7 slices fresh root ginger
    • 350ml water
    • 450g uncooked somen noodles or other really thin noodles

    1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Stir in the chicken pieces, return to the boil and cook for 2 minutes; drain. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Stir in the chicken pieces and cook until browned on the outside, about 3 minutes. Pour in the rice wine, toasted sesame oil, sesame oil and ginger slices. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer for 3 minutes. Add the water, return to the boil and cook until the chicken is no longer pink and easily pulls away from the bone, about 5 minutes more.
    2. Meanwhile, fill a large saucepan with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, drop the noodles in a few noodles at a time and return to the boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the noodles have cooked through, but are still firm to the bite, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
    3. Stir the noodles into the simmering chicken to serve.
