4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

Marion’s Kitchen Crispy Chilli Oil, to serve

  • Step 1

    Bring a pan of water to the boil. Add the noodles and cook according to packet instructions until just tender.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile, place a wok or large frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, add the peppercorns. Toast, moving the wok often and stirring with a spatula, for 1 minute or until they just start smoking. Transfer to a mortar and grind with a pestle. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    Place the wok back over medium heat. Swirl in the oil then add the chicken mince. Break it up with your spatula then stir-fry for 5 minutes or until just cooked. Add the garlic, ginger, doubanjiang and peanut butter, then stir-fry for another 30 seconds until fragrant.

  • Step 4

    Next, add the broccolini, the ground Sichuan peppercorns and the coconut milk. Stir-fry for 2–3 minutes until the broccolini is just tender.

  • Step 5

    Transfer the cooked noodles to the wok and give everything a mix until well combined. Divide between serving bowls or plates and add the julienned carrot and cucumber. Scatter over the green chilli, if using. Finally, add a drizzle of crispy chilli oil, then serve.

  • Notes

    You can substitute pork, beef or turkey mince for the chicken if you prefer.
