A favourite in our house. Always add a bit more soy but apart from that a perfect midweek meal

Love it love it love it! A regular mid week meal. Quick, easy and healthy. Agree with the others - nice with a bit more soy sauce added after the chicken.

Cooked this tonight for a family meal. It was delicious. I added more soy sauce and I also added a handful of chestnut mushrooms with the spring onion. The chicken was moist and tasty and the veggies were tender. I will definately cook this again. My adult son loved it.

Easy, tasty, healthy and cheap! No reason anyone should ever eat a ready meal with a recipe this quick and easy.Offered sweet chlli sauce with it but it wasn't necessary. Husband is nagging me to mention that he loved it too

I added whatever veg I had and it was very quick and tasty.

This is one of our favourites. Something this simple really shouldn't taste this good...But it does! Sometimes I use different veg - whatever I have in the fridge - and it still works. Simple enough for the kids to help with too.

I work and I find I don't have much time to cook, so quite often I cook this, as it's quick and easy - very nice!!
