Preparation method

1. Preheat grill on high. Line a roasting pan with lightly greased aluminium foil.

2. Combine chilli sauce, honey, oil and garlic in a small jug. Pour half into a bowl and add chicken. Season and toss to coat. Place chicken in prepared pan and cook under grill for 4 minutes. Turn chicken and brush with marinade. Grill for another 4 minutes, until cooked through.

4. Heat a lightly greased wok on high. Stir-fry pak choy for 2 minutes.

5. Add noodles and remaining marinade and stir-fry until heated through. 6. Serve chicken with pak choy, rice noodles and lime wedges.

Kid-friendly tip: leave out the spicy chilli sauce and replace it with soy sauce.
