Healthy And Delicious Chilli Chicken Stir Fry Noodles

If Asian food is one of your favourites, you’ll be pleased to know how easy it is to recreate at home.

And unlike a lot of take away noodles and stir fries which can be quite oily and sweet, this one has minimal oil and no added sugar. It’s really simple to make too, so if you’re following a healhty eating plan like the 28 day weight loss challenge then this is the perfect weekend take-away meal to add to your menu.

Chicken Noodles

We have used chicken here, but you could also use lean diced beef or lamb if you prefer, or even some fresh prawns would be great.

And the ‘anything goes’ style flows down to the veggies too. Prefer zucchini? Throw some in. Don’t like bean sprouts? Toss in some thinly sliced carrot instead for the crunch. Like more heat? Crank up the chilli levels to your heart’s content.
