Much better than a store bought stir fry. I prefer to cook chicken breasts in the oven and then tear it up while it's still warm. Everything else goes into one big frying pan - peppers and a sliced red onion first, then the beansprouts and noodles and sauce and then the chicken. Absolutely delicious and so easy to make.

A great recipe for a yummy dinner. However, I prefer fresh ingredients and COOKING instead of just stirring everything in a bowl... I heated a tblsp of oil, fried the chicken, and then added the vegetables - they do need a quick stir-fry. The peanuts added at the end make it special - and still not too weird for picky guest dinners.

As I don't like hot chilly and could not buy sweet chilly sauce I used some sweet Hungarian ground pepper, it worked perfectly.
