    Omg this sounds amazing!! So good in fact that I have just done my online shopping order and added cashew nuts to the shop so I can give it a go this week.

    This sounds really good, and it looks easy enough for my teenagers to make without me supervising them!! Win/win really!

    Such an easy recipe. I have tried something similar to this using peanuts and beef instead. The ingredients are very much similar to a lot of Chinese food recipes.

    Yummy! Nice recipe that is pretty straight forward and looks delish! I would use Organic free range chicken and organic veges we buy from the Farmer’s Markets every Sat 🙂 I think even my 7 year old may eat this! Satay is yummo and I haven’t had it for ages, so will give this recipe a go 🙂

    I’m loving the look of this recipe, we love our stir frys and I know this would go down a treat with the whole family.

    This sounds great with easy to follow instructions too. I might have to try and see if the kids like this once I have got all the ingredients. It’s great to get new recipe ideas that the family will eat especially stir fry’s.

    I love that this chicken stir fry uses thighs vs Breast… I find breast very dry and especially when cooking at higher temps like stirfrys it becomes tasteless and chewy sometimes.
    This recipe sounds so quick and simple too and one wok wonder… Love it!! Convienance and minimal clean up always a plus for us.
    Stirfrys are so versatile too.. Depending on season adding fresh veg super simple too

    Yumm this sounds absolutely delicious. We are right into our chicken stirfrys at moment so will definitely have to try this one out. And I love satay flavor its so good. Definitely will be writing this recipe down for later in the week.
