  1. Step 1

    Heat oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Add mince and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to break up any lumps, for 5 mins or until mince changes colour. Add five spice. Cook for 30 secs or until aromatic. Add hoisin sauce, soy sauce, tahini and sriracha or chilli sauce and stir-fry for 5 mins or until heated through. Transfer one-third of the mince mixture to a heatproof bowl.

  2. Step 2

    Add the stock and 2 cups (500ml) water to the remaining mince mixture in pan. Bring to the boil. Top with the pak choy. Cook for 1-2 mins or until the pak choy just wilts.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, cook noodles in a large saucepan of boiling water following packet directions. Drain well.

  4. Step 4

    Divide noodles among serving bowls. Spoon the chicken soup evenly among serving bowls. Top with the pak choy. Spoon over the reserved chicken mixture to serve.
