Step 1

  • Rinse chicken in lemon juice to ensure it is cleaned properly (You gotta clean that chicken yo!).
  • Cut chicken into small pieces if it isn’t already pre-cut.
  • Season with salt and spices of your choice and allow to marinade for about 15minutes. I used salt, garlic, ginger, curry and chicken cube.

Step 2

  • Break (or put as whole) spaghetti into salted boiling water.
  • Allow to cook for 10minutes.
  • Drain off water when cooked.

Step 3

  • With a tablespoon or two, lightly fry the chicken so it is slightly cooked and has the golden brown coating.
  • Put chicken away.
  • Using a clean pan, adding about two tablespoons of vegetable oil, add chopped garlic, ginger and onion to heated oil. Fry for a minute or so, allowing oil to be infused.
  • Add chosen vegetables and seasoning. I used peppers and sugar snaps.
  • Reintroduce chicken and cook for a few more minutes. Add some more seasoning if needed.
  • Add ready cooked spaghetti and allow to simmer for about five minutes.
  • Add two tablespoons of soy sauce, and allow to cook further for another minute or so.

Step 4

  • Using a clean dry pan, add sesame seeds and cashew nuts. Allow to toast; stir occasionally.
  • Plate food; also including your toasted sesame seeds and cashew nuts.

Step 5

  • Eat and be merry!
