Chicken Cashew and Noodle Stir-Fry

Total Time
Prep 30 mins
Cook 15 mins

From Australian BH&G Diabetic Living. As the DH cooks most of the stir-frys in this household (I do all the prep) I'm hoping to get him to give this one a try so saving here (easier to print out the recipe than using the magazine), though would make some minor changes for allergy reasons. Please note that they usually do not specify brands in their recipes unless they feel they are integrate to the nutritional count.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the noodles in a medium heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water and set aside for 2 minutes and the drain and separate the noodles and set aside.
  2. Put the honey, soy sauce and lemon juice in a small bowl and whisk to combine and set aside.
  3. Brush a little oil over a large wok and heat on high until the wok is hot and then add half the chicken and stir fry for 2 minutes or until the chicken is almost cooked and transfer to a plate.
  4. Brush the wok with a little more boil and reheat the work on high and repeat with remaining chicken and then remove chicken from the wok.
  5. Brush the wok with the remaining oil and heat on medium high and add the vegetables and garlic and stir-fry for 2 minutes and then add the water and cook covered tossing twice for 2 minutes until the vegetable are just tender.
  6. Add the noodles and chicken to the wok and toss well to combine and the sauce mixture and toss to combine and heat through and then top with the cashews to serve (personally in this case I would just add the cashews once plated up).

Very nice, Pat!! Made almost exactly to recipe, except that I made it sooner than I expected to, and didn't have any peppers. I did have zucchini, so subbed that very successfully, and I would have added baby corn if I'd had it ... but I didn't! The trick with stir-fry is always, do the prep, then the cooking takes no time at all, and you have a delicious healthy meal! Thank you, this was lovely! Made for Make My Recipe tag game.

Pretty much followed the recipe, although I did cut it in half for just the 2 of us, & then also used the 1/3 cup of cashews called for in the full recipe! Love those nuts! This stir-fry was absolutely delicious & so easy to prepare! A great keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Went to the Market recipe tag]

Lovely easy recipe Pat.
The only thing I would change is too add more sauce and maybe thicken it a little, but other than that it was lovely.
The family also enjoyed this, and the only change I made was to add brocolli and bok choy, as I have so much I am growing and need to use up. Ohhhh and I also followed your suggestion of more cashews........... which is a must!
Enjoyed by all.....Thanks for another lovely quick,easy
and wonderful tasting recipe Pat.
