Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil. Finely grate the garlic and ginger. Thinly slice the carrot into half-moons. Roughly chop the Asian greens. Cut the chicken breast into 2cm chunks


Cook the udon noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally with a fork to separate, until softened, 2 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water, then set aside.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. When the oil is hot, cook the chicken, tossing occasionally, until browned, 3-4 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-high, then add the carrot and cook until starting to soften, 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.


Add the mild Thai red curry paste (see ingredients) to the chicken and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the coconut milk, water, brown sugar and soy sauce. Stir well to combine, then bring to a simmer.


Add the Asian greens to the curry and cook until wilted, 2 minutes. Add the noodles and toss to combine.


Roughly chop the coriander. Slice the lemon into wedges. Divide the mild Thai red coconut chicken and noodles between bowls. Top with the coriander. Serve with the lemon wedges.
