Chilli Cashew Chicken Noodles


Category : , ,

It's mid-week cooking time again!
I've given up telling my mum what I'm going to be cooking as she seems to dismiss some recipes I really want to try, this being one of them. I knew she would have taken one look at it and said "Nah, pick something else"...sorry mum, I know you read this blog!

Luckily she rather liked this recipe when she tasted it!
Although following Donna Hay's recipe we ended up with way too much chicken, and I only put in half the required chilli, and it was spicy enough! I also used more noodles than it stated, as a result there wasn't enough sauce to cover them all so it was a little dry. BUT it still tasted good and I would make it again! I also only used half the onion required as I felt 2 onions would have been overkill!

Alas, Donna Hay has helped me create a flavour sensation!

Eh Voila! Bon App├ętit!


I'm making these tonight! Will only be using a fraction of some of the ingredients. Might add a little more of the liquid to cover the noodles.

Will let you know how it goes. x
