1. Slice the chicken into 1cm strips. Place the chicken in a bowl with the sherry, soy sauce, a knob of butter and a sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper. Mix well, cover and microwave until cooked, then drain.

2. Whilst the chicken is cooking: halve the mushrooms, slice the pepper and spring onions, and finely chop the garlic. Cook the dried noodles according to their instructions, then drain.

3. Heat the oil in a wok. Add the spring onions, garlic and ginger and stir fry for half a minute.

4. Add the stock, peppers, mushrooms, and drained chicken. Stir fry for 5 minutes.

5. Add the sherry, soy sauce and cornflour. Stir well. Add the noodles and stir fry for 3 minutes.

If you have cooked chicken available, you can use that instead of step 1.
Scale up the quantities to serve more people.
You could add fresh beansprouts in step 5 with the noodles, or use cooked pork instead of the chicken.
