"From Australian BH&G Diabetic Living. As the DH cooks most of the stir-frys in this household (I do all the prep) I'm hoping to get him to give this one a try so saving here (easier to print out the recipe than using the magazine), though would make some minor changes for allergy reasons. Please note that they usually do not specify brands in their recipes unless they feel they are integrate to the nutritional count. 11th March '17 Made this tonight using 1 kilogram of chicken breast but cut way back on the vegies and served it over wholemeal hokein noodles, used enough vegies for 2 serves serving most of them with the dinner with the rest left in the left overs which will be frozen for the DH's dinner for when he is on night shift."
