SW recipe: Chinese-style lemon chicken with noodles

Serves 4
Syns per serving ½
❆ (chicken and sauce only)
Ready in 30 minutes


2 level tbsp cornflour

Juice of 2 lemons

2 tbsp light soy sauce

3cm-piece fresh root ginger, grated

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 chicken stock cube

2 level tbsp sweetener granules

Low-calorie cooking spray

400g skinless and boneless chicken thighs, visible fat removed, chopped into bite-size pieces

2 onions, sliced

2 green peppers, deseeded and sliced

250g dried medium egg noodles

4 spring onions, finely sliced

30g fresh coriander, roughly chopped, reserving some to serve


1 To make the sauce, put the cornflour in a measuring jug and mix in the lemon juice with a fork. Add the soy sauce, ginger and garlic. Crumble in the stock cube, then add the sweetener and 350ml boiling water. Stir everything together, then set aside.

2 Spray a large, non-stick wok or frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Add the chicken in a single layer and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until browned a little, then transfer to a plate and set aside. You may have to do this in batches.

3 Add the onions and peppers to the pan, and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes, adding a splash of water if the veg start to catch on the pan. Return the chicken to the pan, pour in the sauce, then bubble for 4-5 minutes, or until thickened and glossy, and the chicken is cooked through. Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to the pack instructions, then drain.

4 Season the chicken mixture to taste, then stir in the spring onions and coriander. Divide the noodles and chicken between 4 bowls, and top with the reserved coriander and freshly ground black pepper to serve.
