Honey and Lemon Stir Fry

As I have been trying to eat healthily my meals have been becoming a little bit repetitive and tedious, which is making the healthy eating even harder to stick too. This week I decided that if I wanted to keep up the healthy eating I was going to have to experiment a bit more with my cooking of low calorie meals, even if it is not as fun as high calorie treats! So I had quite a few ingredients left over from last weeks curry that helped to give me an idea. So here is my recipe for Honey and Lemon Stir Fry:

Ingredients

  • 150g of Chicken Breast Chopped into Small Pieces
  • 300g of Thick Egg Noodles
  • 1 Red Pepper Chopped
  • 2 Red Onions Peeled and Chopped
  • 2tbsp of Oil
  • 3cm Piece of Fresh Ginger Peeled and Finely Diced
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic Crushed
  • 2tbsp of Soy Sauce
  • 2tsbp of Honey
  • 2tbsp of Lemon Juice
  • 1 Pinch of Chilli Flakes
  • Salt and Pepper
Honey and Lemon Stir Fry

Method

  1. Firstly pour some hot water into the bowl and soak the egg noodles
  2. Then begin to heat the oil in the pan
  3. Add the ginger, garlic, chilli and salt and pepper and stir
  4. Then add the chicken and fry for 4-5 minutes until cooked through
  5. Then add the onion and pepper and fry for 2 minutes
  6. Now it is time to make the sauce, add the soy sauce and honey to the wok
  7. Let this heat up whilst you drain the noodles and add to the stir fry
  8. Fry for a further 3-4 minutes whilst stirring regularly to ensure that all of the noodles are covered in sauce
  9. Finally add the lemon juice and cook for a further minute

I cannot put my finger on what but this dish really reminded me of something, possibly even from my favourite Chinese takeaway in the UK, and although I am not sure what, that flavour has ensured that I will be making this on a regular basis from now on! It was really quick to cook so is a great way to get a delicious meal even on an evening after work when you are just not in the mood to cook. all in all I think my Honey and Lemon Stir Fry Recipe is a keeper!
