Sticky ginger and lime chicken

This tasty meal is the perfect quick meal.

Stir fry is such a good option any night of the week and this sticky, tasty version is one of the best out there. It’s packed full of amazing Asian flavours with plenty of ginger and lime for that beautifully vibrant and fresh flavour. Follow the recipe for the sauce, but when it comes to the veggies you can choose whichever ones you like to go into the pan. Try mixing it up seasonally for the best flavours (and the most budget friendly options) – mushrooms, capsicum, spinach, and green beans all work perfectly! Serve the dish on a bed of fluffy steamed rice and tuck in!
