Child Friendly Chicken Noodle Stir Fry

Child Friendly Chicken Noodle Stir Fry

It's been far too long since I've posted a recipe on here. Unfortunately due to a family bereavement, the last month or so has gone by in a bit of a blur, with no real inclination or energy to post - grief is SO DRAINING 😢. Time is a great healer they say, although I don't suppose I'll ever get over the loss of my dear Dad (he sadly took his own life after another battle with the evil depression), but I now feel in the right frame of mind to start blogging again and I'm itching to get creative in the kitchen! Cooking is my relaxation, and I need a bit of that at the moment.

This Chicken Noodle Stir Fry was a quick and easy mid week recipe that the kids absolutely loved. The stir fry sauce isn't spicy so suits the fussiest of eaters, and most of the ingredients can be found in your store cupboard.

Child Friendly Chicken Noodle Stir Fry


  • Vary the veg by adding corn, mushrooms or courgette - whatever your fussy eaters will enjoy!
  • If you want to spice it up a bit add 1 chopped red chilli  to the garlic, onion and ginger base.
  • Leftovers are great for lunch the next day - I like them cold from the fridge!
  • To lower the carbs use courgetti instead of the noodles. Just quickly boil it in some salted water before using.
  • Use leftover roast beef or pork from your Sunday roast instead of the chicken. Just add it at the end and warm it through.

  1. What a lovely recipe. So sorry to hear about your Dad, grief tends to come in waves, so keeping going is tough, but sharing is also quite cathartic, so I hope you can feel all the support coming at you from the blogosphere x

    1. Thanks Janice. Getting back to blogging definitely the best thing I can do!

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Family Favourite Minced Beef Cobbler

An easy, filling and relatively frugal meal that the whole family will enjoy, even the fussiest of children. I love savoury cobblers, there's something very comforting about them, especially when you top the scones with plenty of cheddar cheese like I do in this recipe. This minced beef cobbler features heavily on our meal plans during the winter months and I like to serve it with seasonal veggies, or failing that some peas from the freezer (to be fair it's usually peas from freezer!!). My lot would quite happily gobble a bowl of this on it's own though. It's most definitely a keeper in this house!

TIPS FOR MAKING THE MINCED BEEF COBBLERUp the veggies by adding peppers, mushrooms and courgettes to the mince.Make a veggie version by omitting the bacon and using Quorn mince instead.Double the recipe if you're feeding a crowd.Add a tablespoon of caramelised onion chutney to the mince to give it an extra rich flavour.Serve with seasonal veggies (or peas from the freez…
