    Used different ingredients. I was so happy to find this recipe! Its nearly identical to one which was served in a restraunt where I used to work. The dish was called Thai Chicken. To recreate it I addded shredded chicken breast, julienned carrots and cabbage. Really tasty either way!  -  21 Jul 2008


    LOVED this recipe! I boiled mangetout, carrot, courgette and beansprouts with the noodles, and also added a few tablespoons of coconut milk to the sauce. Had no chilli paste, so used just chilli sauce from a jar. Delish, will definitely be a favourite!  -  19 Sep 2011


    My first attempt at a stir fry. I included 200g of 'Chinese Style' sliced chicken from Tesco. Used finely chopped preserved stem ginger with some of the nectar. Family loved it! Recipe is really easy to follow.  -  14 Feb 2012
