I made this using leftover roast chicken for a cheap midweek meal. I omitted the tomato sauce as I didn't think it needed that as well as the sweet chilli sauce. Husband happy, 2 year old son happy, even with the curry powder. It made enough for the three of us, seconds for me and lunch for my husband for the next day. Will definitely be making this again.

Good, easy, tasty tea - I make a version based on the above but use mangetout, carrots, sweetcorn, yellow pepper and sweetcorn instead of the stir fry veg pack - takes a little longer to prepare this way but at least I know the kids'll eat all the veg this way, also leave the curry powder till last so little one can have a less spicy serving

Thought i'd make this for me and my son (8) as a healthy (ish) midweek tea as it has all the ingredients he likes. Although he thought it was a bit spicy a more adventurous child would be fine with it. Don't think it needs tomato sauce as the chilli sauce already adds sweetness. I just used up lots of leftover veg that needed eating and quite often ends up being thrown away, a carrot, bit of broccoli, spring onion etc.

A new winner in our house. I was tempted to leave out the egg but actually it adds another dimension (2 medium eggs between 2 of us). We used 1 chicken breast between 2 (grilled) and 2 rashers of bacon since we had them lying around. I also cooked the rice with onion and a few mushrooms and a chicken stock cube. The stir fry veg we used was very bland and boring but actually once added to everything else was perfect. I added another stock cube to the mix (probably wasn't necessary in retrospect) and some coriander on top.

More simple to make than you think initially looking at the recipe. Tasty, filling and can be made from leftovers or not... Will definitely be making again.

I only discovered this recipe last week and I've already made it twice. It's extremely tasty and very easy to make as a quick midweek meal, especially if you have leftover chicken and rice.

The flavours in this dish work together perfectly and it's a very economical meal as most of the ingredients are ones you'll already have in the cupboard. It's very filling too, and my family absolutely love it!
