1. Season the chicken thighs on both sides with the five spice. Add a splash of oil to a large frying pan and fry the chicken for 8-10 minutes turning occasionally. Then add the firecracker sauce and a tablespoon of water and turn off the heat.

2. Submerge the rice noodles in boiling water and stir vigorously. After 3 minutes drain the noodles, holding back a couple tablespoons of cooking water and add them to the chicken. Add all the other fresh ingredients to the chicken as well and stir thoroughly. Then add the soy and red miso sauce and stir the mixture well so that all ingredients are covered in sauce.

3. Divide the mixture between 2 plates and get stuck in!
