  • 4 chicken breasts, cut into 4cm strips
  • 1 tsp garlic herb salt
  • 2 tsp green curry paste
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 400ml coconut cream
  • 350g Singapore noodles
  • 3 spring onions, finely sliced on the diagonal
  • 1/2 cup coriander, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup mint, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds

  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 red chillies, seeded and chopped finely

1. Place the first five ingredients into a baking dish and cook for 25 minutes at 180C. Add the noodles. Make sure they are submerged, then cover, and rest for 10 minutes.
