Method
  1. In a wide shallow bowl, mix together the garlic powder, Chinese 5 spice and corn flour. Dredge the chicken pieces in the spiced flour and shake off any excess. Set aside on a clean plate.
  2. Heat approximately 1½ inches of oil in a wok or large frying pan over a medium high heat. When it’s hot add the chicken in batches, cooking for 5 mins or until golden brown and cooked all the way through. Using a slotted spoon remove the chicken to a plate lined with kitchen paper.
  3. Drain off any excess oil left in the pan, leaving a little to fry with, return to the heat and add in the onion, spring onion, garlic and chilli. Fry over a high heat for 2-3 minutes until just softened.
  4. Add the chicken back to the pan and stir through to combine. Sprinkle over the salt and chilli powder and give the whole pan a toss. Stir in the cooked egg noodles and cook until heated through. Serve immediately.
