Sweet Chilli Chicken is sweet, salty and spicy, which is such a perfect combination. This dish has it all and is quick and easy. Your children will enjoy the slurp factor of the noodles.

Sweet Chilli Chicken

The peppers and honey add the sweetness to the sauce. This recipe uses mild chilli powder, but you can use whichever heat chilli you like. The mild chilli is to make it more family friendly. Chilli flakes pack more of a punch, so be careful of the quantity if you’re using those.

The sauce coats the noodles and gives them the flavour they need. It clings onto them to reduce the friction, so you can get some good slurp action.

Recipe Tips

You can use Maple Syrup instead of honey in your Sweet Chilli Chicken, if you prefer. It tends to be sweeter, so you may not need as much.

Don’t overcook the noodles, as they will go too mushy. Cook according to the packet instructions.
