  • 1/2 yellow onion (finely diced)
  • 500 grams minced chicken
  • 1 carrots (cut into matchsticks)
  • 125 grams beansprouts
  • 1/2 cabbage (sliced thinly into 'noodles')
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons xylitol sweetener
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar (finely diced)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 spring onions (finely diced)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 4 boiled eggs (finely diced)

  • Boil eggs and remove shells.
  • Cut all vegetables as above and prepare everything in advance as this dish comes together quickly.
  • Sauce In a small bowl or glass jar, place the xantham gum and xylitol.
  • Mix until combined evenly - this is important to prevent the xantham gum from clumping.
  • Add in 1 teaspoon of cold water and mix to make a paste.
  • Continue mixing until it is a uniform mixture (not worrying if the sugar isn't completely dissolved).
  • Next add the remaining sauce ingredients and whisk thoroughly to combine.
  • The sauce will thicken further upon cooking.
  • In a large frying pan or wok, add one tablespoon of olive oil, garlic and ginger and diced onion.
  • Saute over medium-high heat for 1 - 2 minutes until the onion is starting to brown.
  • Add the chicken mince and break it up with a wooden spoon while continuing to cook for 7 - 8 minutes.
  • Add the carrot and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  • Finally, add the bean sprouts and half the prepared sauce.
  • Turn heat up to high and stir constantly while the sauce thickens to your liking.
  • Set the cooked mince aside.
  • In the same frying pan, add an additional 1 tablespoon olive oil and sliced cabbage over medium-high heat and saute for 3 - 4 minutes.
  • Add the remaining prepared sauce and continue cooking until texture is to your liking.
  • Serve cabbage noodles with boiled egg and chicken chow mein, sprinkled with sesame seeds, sliced spring onion and chilli.
