It’s so easy to overcomplicate things like stir-fries- I have 2 fairly fussy little eaters on my hands and this is the stir-fry I make for them which is very quick and simple, but still tastes really good! They love the carrot in ribbons- usually one will only eat cooked carrots and one will only eat raw, I do a mix with the ribbons and they both eat both!

Simple chicken stir-fry

  • Author: Pip Payne
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 kids 1x


This is just the simple stir-fry that I make for my kids!

Syns per portion: 1


  • 1 nest medium egg noodles
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1 cm piece of ginger (peeled and finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1 carrot peeled and then sliced into ribbons using the peeler
  • a handful broccoli (pulled apart into small florets)
  • 1 chicken thigh fillet (cut into small pieces)
  • 1 tsp sunflower oil


  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan, and throw in the chicken to start cooking.
  2. Fill a pan with boiling water and pop in the noodles (usually around 3 minutes to cook)
  3. Give the chicken a good stir, and add in the ginger and garlic. Stir fry for 1 minute, then add in the soy sauce, half the carrot and the broccoli
  4. Drain the noodles when cooked, and set in the colander over the hot drained water while you finish stir-frying the chicken. (I sometimes add a little splash of boiling water at this point to stop ginger and garlic burning)
  5. Once the chicken is cooked through, toss in the noodles and stir to combine.
  6. Serve topped with the remaining carrot ribbons
