Trashy Lemon Chicken Noodles

This is possibly one of the trashiest meals I've made. I was meant to go out for lunch one day last week, but the friend I was going with cancelled on me, so I ate what I had got out for dinner, for lunch. That meant that when I got home I had to find something for dinner. Now most of my food is frozen, and most can't be eaten straight from frozen, which is why I like to menu plan each week. So this situation always causes something of a dilemma. I found a packet of lemon sauce that needed eating and had chicken nuggets in the freezer, so I combined them with noodles and had a delicious, if trashy, dinner.

I am entering this into this weeks Presto Pasta Nights, this week hosted by Savoury Specialist at Our Taste of Life. Check out her blog for the round up on Friday.

Trashy Lemon Chicken Noodles
(Serves 1)

5 chicken dippers/nuggets
1 packet of straight to wok egg noodles
4 pieces of tenderstem broccoli
small handful mangetout
small handful frozen peas
packet of Chinese lemon sauce
2 spring onions, sliced
toasted sesame seeds

Cook the chicken nuggets and frozen peas according to packet instructions. I usually do the frozen peas in the microwave.

Heat some oil in a wok, and add the broccoli, cook for a minute or so and add the mange tout. Add in the noodles and stir. When the peas are cooked add them in, and the chicken nuggets. Then stir in the sauce and cook for a few mins until heated through.

Serve with the spring onions on top and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds


  1. Frankly, sometimes "trashy" is just what the doctor ordered. I love the dish. Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.

  2. This is a creative way to use up different ingredients! Love it!

  3. I love your description of this as trashy! Definitely a good clean out the fridge type of meal.
