For a speedy mid-week meal that's ready in just 15 minutes, look no further than this teriyaki chicken and noodle stir-fry. Made with spring onions, carrots and lean meat, this recipe is well-balanced and healthy. As well as being good for you it's also packed with punchy sweet and sticky flavours; it's the mirin, a type of rice wine, in teriyaki sauce that gives this dish its depth of flavour. Sliced red peppers, sugar-snap peas and toasted cashew nuts would make good additions to this recipe, another alternative is to leave out the noodles and serve the chicken stir-fry with rice.
