Cooked this today, added garlic, chilli flakes, onions, broccoli and peppers. Absolutely delicious and quick to make with little clean up.

Cooked this last night and took advice from a previous comment. Added tablespoon of grated ginger, crushed clove of garlic, chopped and de-seeded chilli, half a red and green pepper when stir frying the chicken. On completion of the dish added 3 chopped spring onions! Very good!

Just tried this with half the amount of lime juice and some extra garlic, ginger and red onion based on previous comments. It was really quick and easy to cook and so tasty. I'll definitely be cooking this again!

Bloody awful. Flavourless.

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.

Not tried this yet but it looks delicious, would like to know the number of calories that it contains per serving as currently on a diet!!!

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!
