CHICKEN PUMPKIN LAKSA

Super easy and pretty quick take on a noodle laksa which I whipped up in no time last night. You might even have all the ingredients in your pantry/fridge. I like to make my own sauces and pastes up so I know there is any nasty stuff or sugar in them. You would be surprised how bad packet sauces and pre made stuff is.
