Sesame Chicken & Crucny Veg Stir Fry
Posted on 1st April 2023 at 00:08
Stir-fries are a great way to use up any left over veggies in the fridge. This one has added crunch with red cabbage and a nutty sprinkling of sesame seeds.
Ready in : 20 minutes
Serves : 4
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp grated root ginger
2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1 onion, peeled and thinly sliced
350g chicken breast fillet, cut into thin strips
2 large carrots, peeled and coarsely grated
225g broccoli florets, blanched (see Tip)
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp runny honey
300g pack fresh noodles
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp sesame seeds
¼ of a red cabbage, finely shredded and blanched (see Tip)
To serve :
Heat the vegetable oil in a large wok or non-stick frying pan over a high until until almost smoking. Add the ginger and garlic and stir-fry for 30 seconds then add the onion and chicken and stir-fry for a further 2-3 minutes until the onion is tender and the chicken is almost cooked through.
Add the grated carrot and broccoli and stir-fry for another minute then stir in the soy sauce, honey and noodles with 1-2 tbsp hot water. Stir fry for a further 1-2 minutes until the noodles are piping hot. Stir in the sesame oil and half the sesame seeds.
Divide the stir-fry between four warmed serving dishes and top with the rest of the sesame seeds and the shredded red cabbage. Serve immediately with lime wedges.
TIP : Blanching the broccoli and red cabbage will just soften them slightly. Plunge into a pan of boiling water for 1 minute then drain and refresh under cold water.
