Chicken Stir Fry

Stir fry is dead easy and one of my favourite meals, so here’s a nice simple chicken stir fry recipe that I regularly use. Can’t remember where this was adapted from, but it works pretty well.



  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 red pepper, sliced
  • 1 tbsp fresh chopped ginger
  • 2 chicken breasts, sliced
  • 1 chopped chilli
  • 2-3 shitake mushrooms
  • pinch chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • Lime, juice only
  • 1 pak choi, sliced
  • 1 tbsp cornflour, mixed with water
  • 110g/4oz egg noodles, cooked
  • sesame seeds, to serve

To cook it:

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok. Sauté the shallot, pepper and chicken slices for a few minutes, until the chicken is browned.
  2. Stir in the chilli flakes, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, and lime juice. Stir-fry for a few minutes.
  3. Add the pak choi and pour in the cornflour and water mixture. Heat gently for another 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked.
  4. Add the noodles and warm through.
  5. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.
