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.

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!! ;-)
