  • STEP 1

In a jug, mix together the honey, lemon, stock and soy, then set aside. Toss the chicken with the cornflour so it’s completely coated. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then fry the chicken until it changes colour and starts to become crisp around the edges.

  • STEP 2

Add the carrots and red pepper, then fry for 1 min more. Pour the stock into the pan, bring to a simmer, then add the sugar snap peas and bubble everything together for 5 mins until the chicken is cooked and the veg are tender. Serve with noodles.
