Liked the basic idea but thought the recipe needed more flavour, so I added grated fresh ginger and a crushed clove of garlic when stir frying plus some sliced onion and a green pepper, only used one large chicken breast. I also added sesame oil to the noodles after draining. Very tasty. Would make again. Perhaps needs a little more honey to balance the lime.

Not a favourite with my family didn't go down well at all. Won't be making again. I quite liked it.

Really love this - so easy and quick to make. We use fresh chicken breasts cut into thin strips and steam the carrots for a few minutes to make them a little softer. Lemon juice works well too if you don't have limes to hand. Really can't praise enough - love it!

This was a lovely recipie, I added spring onion and mushrooms to make it even nicer. This is now a weekly meal in my house!

The juiciness of the dish was good but the flavouring was a little off-I wouldn't use the lime, soy sauce and honey combination again. Added veg is definitely recommended too

Disgusting. Far too much lime but other than that flavourless. Was so horrid that couldn't eat it and ended up throwing it away and going to the chippy.

This has become a mid week favorite in our house. So light and healthy too. I have tried the recipe using one lime but will stick to two limes because I like the extra juice to coat the noodles with even more sauce.

This has to be one of the worst recipes we have had from this site!

Oops! Had no lime, so used lemon, just as nice, if not better! Added spring onion too, will add mushrooms next time also, because I'm greedy!! ;-)

This was quick and easy to make, but it seemed to need something more than carrots. PS - Remove the Kenco ad. You can do better than that Good Food.

This is really simple and tasty. I added some sugar snap peas and baby corn to bulk it out and chilli flakes are nice too!

'Zingy' it certainly was. Not too sure about this recipe. I think it needed less lime and more of something else...but not sure what!!

Very light though and a nice change.

Wow this recipe looks lovely, and sooo easy to do. I will defenetly be trying this and will be back to let you all know how it went. x

This part is where you comment on the food not the adverts. Nothing seems to be wrong with the advert for me and the dish is a top favourite of mine. Lovely and really easy to do. Try it or you will regret it :)
