Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix vinegar, soy sauce, tomato ketchup, orange juice and honey together. Add the cornflour and stir until well combined.
  2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and stir fry the chicken strips for 3-4 minutes. (If you don't use a non stick pan the chicken will stick to the pan).
  3. Add the vegetables and stir fry for 4-5 minutes.
  4. Add the cornflour mixture and bring to a boil.(Another tip-Don't use an overly large pan like I did or you will find the cornflour mix spreads too thin and there won't be enough liquid cook the vegetables.).
  5. Meanwhile prepare the noodles according to the packet instructions, drain and add to the pan along with the sesame seeds. Mix well.

This was a nice tasting stir-fry, made as directed but after I saw the amount of sauce I doubled it to ensure a nice even coating of all vegetables & noodles ( I like things really saucy) Sorry to say that I still couldn't get my 18 month old to eat this one though!

This was excellent and really very easy. I used cornstarch instead of cornflour, which I'm not sure is OK, but it worked out fine. I'm not sure what christophere is, but I used a zucchini (courgette), the recommended substitute. I loved that I was able to make it entirely with ingredients I had on hand anyway and didn't have to go shopping. A great two-servings meal.

This made a wonderful and quick dinner for DH and me. After cutting up the vegetables and reading Mandy's review, I doubled the sauce because I wanted everything to be nicely coated. I did use a zucchini and because I thought they would cook faster than the other vegetables added it when I added the noodles. The noodles I used were rice noodles. I would highly recommend this recipe.
