Finger Food

Chop the chicken and noodles into small pieces.


  • 3 tbsp clear honey

  • 2 tbsp water

  • 3 tbsp dark soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp cornflour

  • 4 skinless chicken breasts

  • 2 carrots

  • 6-8 spring onions (leave out if your child hates ‘green bits’)

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

  • Handful of peas

  • 1 garlic clove, grated

  • Noodles

  • 1-2 tbsp sesame oil

‘What child doesn’t love sweet, sticky things?’ says Nadia. ‘With this dish, there is also a good whack of protein, carbs and vegetables. Swap the chicken for duck for a change.’

1.  Mix together the honey, water, soy sauce and cornflour in a bowl to make a marinade. Slice the chicken into strips and toss in the marinade. Cut the carrots and spring onions into thin strips.

2.  Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan. Take the chicken out of the marinade with a slotted spoon and stir-fry for 2 minutes until slightly browned. Remove the chicken with the spoon and put into a warmed bowl.

3.  Add the carrot, peas and garlic to the wok or pan and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the spring onion, and then return the cooked chicken to the pan. Cook the noodles as directed.

4.  Pour any remaining marinade into the pan and stir-fry for a couple of minutes. Serve with noodles tossed in the sesame oil.
