Chicken Stir-Fry

This dish is probably my favourite meal! Pizza, pasta...forget those meals! Here is a great meal that is really quite healthy! It is filling, it is fun to make, fun to eat and eating it with chopsticks is the best part! Add a few tiny pieces of chilli and garlic and you've got a meal made! Here is the recipe, so don't waste any time! I can make this meal quite easily as it is so straight-forward! The chopping takes a while but otherwise it is fairly easy! How about making your family a great meal sometime during these christmas holidays?


100g pasta spaghetti
45ml (3 tbsp) olive oil
3 chicken breasts, cut into strips
30ml (2 tbsp) butter
1 medium onion, chopped (you could also use 1 leek, chopped)
10ml (2 tsp) chopped root ginger
3 carrots, peeled and cut into julienne strips
100g broccoli or cauliflower florets (broccoli is my favourite in a stir-fry)
1 medium red pepper, cut into julienne strips
2 sticks celery, chopped
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

For the sauce:

45ml ( 3tbsp) sugar
15ml (1 tbsp) soya sauce
30ml (2 tbsp) worcestershire sauce
60ml lemon juice


1. Bring water to the boil in a large heavy-based saucepan. Add salt to taste. Add pasta gradually and cook until soft, but still firm. Drain and set aside.

2. Heat oil in an electric saucepan and fry chicken strips until starting to brown. Add butter and saute onion and ginger until soft.

Add carrots, broccoli, pepper and celery and fry a few minutes. Add more oil if required. Add spaghetti and seasoning.

3. For sauce: Mix all ingredients together and add to stir-fry. Stir-fry for a few minutes and serve immediately.

Serves 4-6 people.

You can use beef as a variation
