Chicken Chow Mein

This is a fantastic, easy, tasty dish - that is perfect for a weekday meal, that feels like you have put in maximum effort, but really have just thrown it together.  The secret ingredient here is using brown spaghetti instead of noodles - making it much healthier and you wouldn't even notice the difference.   Trust me - Mama Lulabella had no idea!

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes

Serves: 2 

You Will Need:
1 Large Chicken Breast/ 2 Medium sliced thinly
1 Onion Cut into quarters 
1 Green Pepper Diced
1 Small Carrot cut into thin strips
2-3 Tbsp Light Soy Sauce
1 Tsp Garlic Granules
160g Wholewheat Spaghetti
1/2 Bag of Beansprouts 
Frylight/Calorie Controlled SprayOil

Chopped spring onions for garnish (optional)
Boil water in a saucepan  and cook the spaghetti according to package instructions
In a bowl add the chicken, 1 tsp of the soy sauce and granulated garlic - set aside and leave to marinade
In a wok or large frying pan, heat the oil - add the onions, carrot and pepper and stir fry until softened but still with some bite
Add the chicken and the soy marinade to the pan - cook the chicken through 
Add the remaining soy, and beansprouts and cook for 2-3 minutes
Using a pair of tongs, lift the pasta from the water into the pan with the chicken and vegetables - the small bits of water that will come with it, will help make your sauce and coat the pasta 
Serve straight from the pan with some chopped spring onions on top. 
This will get even better, if you leave it over night for leftovers the next day!
