Mental like chicken Oriental

Below is the first in a line of recipes by our resident Harmony Chef 'Danny Jack'.
Bemused by the lack of cooking skills on recent tours/trips, Danny has decided that we should all get a few decent meals that we can prepare instead of beans on toast or 10p noodles.

Welcome to the 'Harmony Kitchen'! The first in a series of recipes is a 10 minute Thai Style Prawn Stir Fry!


- diced chicken or cooked prawns
- mixed vegetables (we use sainsbury's stir fry vegetables for 75p)
- amoy straight to wok noodles
- 1 green or red chilli finely chopped
- 3 garlic cloves finely chopped
- sunflower oil or veg oil
- salt and black pepper
sauces (worthwhile investing in for future stir fry's):
- soy sauce
- thai sweet chilli sauce
- lemon juice
- fish sauce

Method -

Start by marinating the prawns or chicken in a bit of olive oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper
you will need 1 large wok or frying pan.
1. Heat the wok until smoking
2. Add a spoon of veg oil and fry chilli and garlic for 1 minute
(if using chicken add at this stage and seal)
3. Add the vegetables and stir fry for about 4-5minutes
4. Add the prawns and heat through
5. Liberally add the soy sauce, sweet chilli, some lemon juice, a bit of the fish sauce(this is potent stuff!) and salt and pepper
6. Finally add the noodles to the mix and heat through. Serve immediately

This should take about 10 minutes in total and all done in one pan.
