  • soy or sauce 1 tbsp
  • runny or honey 1 tbsp
  • chicken or breasts 2 skinless, cut into strips
  • olive or chilli oil
  • cashew nuts 50g
  • baby leaf spinach 50g
  • spring or onions ½ a bunch, sliced
  • beansprouts 75g
  • lime 1, ½ cut into wedges


  • Step 1

    Mix the soy, honey and chicken and leave for 5 minutes. Heat a little oil (go easy if using chilli oil) in a wok or frying pan. Add the chicken and nuts and stir-fry for 3–4 minutes. Up the heat for a few more minutes until the honey turns sticky and coats the chicken. Mix the spinach, spring onion and beansprouts. Drizzle with lime juice and olive oil. Season. Serve with the chicken and lime wedges.
