If you’re looking for a really speedy idea for a week night meal or just don’t fancy taking too long to whip up something tasty at the weekend, give this healthy chicken recipe a go and you’ll have a really flavoursome meal in a flash.

Using cooked chicken is the key to speeding up this classic Chinese recipe, and you can either pick up a cooked chicken from your supermarket or just use up any leftovers that you’ve got sitting in your fridge. It’s just a case of shredding them into this recipe so it helps to really cut down the cooking time.

Using ready cooked rice noodles is another way this recipe is quick to put together, as is using ready made satay sauce you can buy in the supermarket too. When combined with cucumber, spring onions and plenty of satay sauce, the chicken and noodles combine to make a really impressive classic Chinese dish.

Cucumber is a great source of vitamin K, copper and vitamin C, so it’s a good one to include in this dish, while spring onions are also a great source of vitamin C, so you’re getting plenty of vitamins in this dish too.
