Honey Sticky Chicken Noodles recipe

Honey sticky chicken noodles recipe
  • Serves: 4
  • Preparation time: 10 minutes

Method

‘What child doesn’t love sweet, sticky things?’ says Nadia. ‘With this dish, there is also a good whack of protein, carbs and vegetables. Swap the chicken for duck for a change.’

1.  Mix together the honey, water, soy sauce and cornflour in a bowl to make a marinade. Slice the chicken into strips and toss in the marinade. Cut the carrots and spring onions into thin strips.

2.  Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan. Take the chicken out of the marinade with a slotted spoon and stir-fry for 2 minutes until slightly browned. Remove the chicken with the spoon and put into a warmed bowl.

3.  Add the carrot, peas and garlic to the wok or pan and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the spring onion, and then return the cooked chicken to the pan. Cook the noodles as directed.

4.  Pour any remaining marinade into the pan and stir-fry for a couple of minutes. Serve with noodles tossed in the sesame oil.

Pregnant? Chicken is a good source of protein, vital for you and your bump.
