  3. Whisk together coconut milk powder and stock and stir into the laksa paste. Add the chicken, cover and simmer for 15minutes. Season with the lime juice and brown sugar.

  4. Remove the chicken and cool slightly before slicing. Add the broccolini and snow peas to the wok and simmer until the vegetables are tender.
