    • 4 skinless chicken breasts, cut to 2.5cm cubes
    • 2 medium onions, diced
    • 5 cloves garlic, sliced
    • 1 handful grated red cabbage
    • 225ml chicken stock

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Put the wok on the hob and add the oil until it is nearly smoking, then add the chicken and stir fry until browned on all sides.
    2. Lower the heat, then add the onions and garlic, trying not to fry them too much. Then add the cabbage.
    3. Add the chicken stock and soya sauce and simmer for 10 minutes.
    4. Add the noodles and beansprouts. Cook for a further 3 minutes untill the beansprouts are just cooked and the noodles are tender.
    5. Serve in a bowl and sprinkle on chopped spring onions and extra soya sauce if liked. Serve with prawn crackers on the side.


    Always make sure your chicken is cooked thoroughly before serving. To check, cut through the largest piece of chicken; if it is no longer pink, it is done.

    what a fantastic stir fry, nice and easy, i did however cut corners by buying pre sliced onions, and i added chinese five spice at the beginning with the chicken, puts even more flavour in. great for novices  -  28 Apr 2018
