Recipe: Hot & Sour Chicken Stir-Fry

Patak's Goan Hot & Sour Indian Stir Fry SauceI have used the Goan Hot & Sour Indian Stir Fry Sauce by Patak’s as the sauce for this dish. As usual, there wasn’t quite enough flavour in the sauce so I added extras to help emphasise the dish. These sauce packets, whilst shunned my many, are a great way to speed up cooking and are usually available for excellent prices in the supermarkets – as long as you are happy adding to the sauce they are a great store-cupboard item! Of course this dish is also Gluten Free!

As with most of my dishes I have once again used a lot of vegetables to increase the amount of food per serving whilst limiting the calorie overhead. You can add egg noodles at the same time as adding the Stir Fry sauce if you want to add more body to the dish.

This recipe generously serves 2, either served with egg noodles or another side of your choice.
