It’s time to put down those take away menus and ready meals! This student stir fry is a quick, delicious and nutritious main meal; just what you need after a long day of lectures!
Some of the ingredients will keep well in your cupboard for a long length of time, so not only does this save you the regular long trek to Aldi or Asda, it saves you money too.
Portion control is an issue when students start to cook for themselves; this recipe gives you the ingredients for one portion. If you are cooking for friends, simply multiply the ingredients by the number of people you are cooking for.
Serves 1 | Prep: 5 minutes | Cook: approx.15 minutes
2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce (light or dark)
1 tsp Chinese five-spice
½ tsp chilli flakes (optional)
1 chicken breast fillet
1 sheet or nest of egg/wholemeal noodles
½ stir fry pack of ready chopped vegetables
How to make it
1. Heat a wok on high heat and add all of the sauce ingredients – mix briefly.
2. Cut the chicken breast into small chunks, add them to the wok, and cook until brown.
3. Boil a kettle and add the water to a saucepan on medium heat, then add your noodles. You may need to break the noodles up with a fork to separate the strands.
4. Add stir fry vegetables to the chicken and stir until soft.
5. Strain the noodles when soft into a colander and add to the wok – stir thoroughly until all the noodles are incorporated into the chicken, vegetable and sauce mixture.
6. Serve and enjoy!
