Add in the chicken, turn the heat down to medium, place the lid on and leave to cook for 6 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Add in the noodles, red pepper, snap peas, fish sauce and lime juice, stir through and remove the pot from the heat.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
