1 Prepare noodles following packet directions. Drain and run under cold water to cool. Add 1 teaspoon sesame oil and mix through to prevent noodles sticking.
2 Prepare Crunchy colourful mix. Combine noodles and vegetables in a large bowl and mix together so vegetables are well distributed.
3 Prepare Lemon dressing. Reserve 2 tablespoons dressing. Tip remaining dressing over noodle mixture and mix well to combine and coat all noodles with dressing.
4 Heat a spray of oil in a large pan or wok. Cook chicken for about 3 minutes until browned and cooked through. Remove from heat. Add reserved dressing to pan and stir to coat chicken. Divide noodle mixture among 4 plates or bowls. Top with chicken and garnish with peanuts and coriander. Drizzle over remaining sesame oil.
