If you’re anything like me and live on a gluten free diet, then I think it’s fair to say that one of the main things we miss is Chinese food. As much as I strongly agree that eating home cooked, wholesome food is beneficial to living a long and healthy life, we all sometimes need just a bite of deep fried, sweet and sour loveliness for a treat on a Saturday night whilst sat in front of the TV watching Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.
This chicken and mango stir fry is perfect for fulfilling your junk food cravings in a healthy way. Packed full of nutrients and vegetables, it can be prepared and whipped up in under half an hour, making it a yummylicious, easy recipe for weeknights or weekends. Just don’t forget the prawn crackers!
- 2 pieces pork steak
- 1 bunch spring onions
