In need of a little spice to warm your winter evenings?

This deliciously simple recipe from Niall Kirkland is a quick win for weekday dinners that comes with a welcome kick of heat. Featuring our incredible Sugar-Free Sauce, it’s a great healthy twist on a takeaway classic.

Serves 3


  • 400g chicken thighs (cut into strips)
  • 5 tbsp. Sugar-Free Sauce (Sweet Chilli)
  • 1 tsp. crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp. chilli paste
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to season
  • Handful cabbage (chopped)
  • 1 carrot (thinly sliced)
  • 1 pepper (thinly sliced)
  • 1 red chilli (sliced)
  • 2 spring onions (chopped)
  • 600g easy cook noodles
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
Optional garnishes:
  • Sesame seeds
  • 1 spring onion (chopped)
  • Handful coriander (chopped)


  1. Firstly, add the chicken thigh strips, 3 tablespoons of Sugar-Free Sauce (Sweet Chilli), garlic and chilli paste to a small bowl and mix well.
  2. Next, heat the olive oil in a wok and add the marinated chicken. Fry for 5-7 minutes, turning regularly until the chicken is completely cooked through and no longer pink on the inside.
  3. Then, add the cabbage, pepper and carrot, and continue frying for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Whilst frying, season to taste with salt and pepper (I like to add a lot of pepper to my stir fries).
  5. Add the spring onions and chilli and fry for a further 2 minutes.
  6. Now, add your noodles, soy sauce and the remaining 2 tablespoons of Sugar-Free Sauce (Sweet Chilli) to your wok. Mix them into the chicken and veg and fry for 3 minutes.
  7. Once the noodles are cooked remove from heat.
  8. Garnish with sesame seeds, spring onions and chopped coriander.
  9. Enjoy!
