“Chicken stir-fry with cashews and chili is a quick and easy recipe that bursts with flavour. A stir-fry is not so speedy if you have to chop up heaps of vegetables, so we've just gone for onions, chilies and peppers to give the chicken some real oomph.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the egg noodles in a large saucepan of boiling water and cook for 3 minutes until tender. Drain, run under cold water and set aside.
