  • Two 200g chicken thighs - skin on and bone in

  • 150g fine rice noodles

  • 200g sugar snap peas

  • Two tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce

  • Two teaspoons of chilli jam


  1. Pull the skin off the chicken. Place the skin in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat to render and get golden, turning occasionally.

  2. Cut the bones out of the thighs and chuck into the pan for bonus flavour, then chop the meat into 2cm pieces. Move the skin and bones to one side of the pan and then add the meat alongside and cook for five minutes.

  3. Once crispy, remove, chop and reserve the skin - discarding the bones.

  4. Cook the noodles in boiling salted water according to the instructions. Halve the sugar snaps lengthways. Once soft, drain the noodles and reserve a cup of the cooking water - then refresh the noodles under cold water.

  5. Use scissors to snip the noodles into roughly 8cm lengths. Stir the Worcestershire sauce and chilli jam into the chicken pan and let the jam melt, then add the sugar snaps and noodles.

  6. Toss over the heat for two minutes, adding a splash of the reserved water to loosen if needed.

  7. Taste and season to perfection with sea salt and black pepper, then dish up and sprinkle over the reserved crispy chicken skin.
