Healthy Pot Noodles

Healthy pot noodles .. …

Today was one of those days,s were we were on the run.  I got my
hair done at 9.30 (by the way Sue I love it). Went to our Parent and toddler group at 10.30.. then off to view “yum,s” preschool for September at 1 0 clock. (I know I can’t believe it either)  then back home for lunch at 1.30. We had around 40 mins for lunch .. (between eating it and cooking it) before “yum” turned into a gremlin.. yep this can happen if she doesn’t have her nap by 2 o clock..     and we were starving …  I had to get some grub into us fast . So healthy pot noodles it was.

These bad boy,s are full of flavour… and super speedy..  the added bonus is that we usually have all the ingredients in without having to take a trip to the shops.. (that never ends well with a hungry, tired toddler) So I was winning!!

.. Any mammy,s with wrecked hungry children this recipe is a godsend!!  Also, any slimming world folks, fancy giving these a whirl this recipe is free on extra easy..

Tip… when you drain your cooked noodles,  rinse off the starch with cold water. add a little fry light or olive oil to the noodles to prevent them from sticking. I find the Sharwoods medium noodles work best 

(feeds a family of 4 😉 or 2 very hungry gremlins

Ingredients

140g of medium egg noodles

4 chicken breasts

1 garlic clove

2 tablespoons of frozen corn

2 tablespoons of frozen peas

  1. Great idea – as we’re off on holiday to Asia, I’ve been trying to get my fussy daughter to eat more noodles (and rice) and I do something similar with the fresh stirfry noodles, veg, chicken and a bit of soy sauce (even a tiny bit of ginger). It’s so quick too, which is a big bonus,

  2. these looks so yummy and perfect little meals for the kiddies 🙂 well and mummy and daddy. there huge fans of noodles too so will be giving this a try during the week thanks hun xx
