Becky Excell's 15-minute sticky teriyaki stir-fry

Becky Excell's 15-minute sticky teriyaki stir-fry

Serves 2-3

Takes 15 minutes


  • Dairy-free.
  • Lactose-free.
  • Low FODMAP
  • Vegetarian & Vegan - use 250g of firm tofu (cut into 1in cubes) instead of pork or chicken

For the sauce:

  • 60ml gluten-free soy sauce
  • 60ml rice wine vinegar or mirin
  • 2 tbsp dry sherry (optional)
  • 2 tbsp garlic-infused oil
  • 2 tbsp minced ginger paste
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp garlic-infused oil
  • 1 red or green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 250g chicken breast fillets or extra firm tofu, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp cornflour
  • 400g fresh rice noodles or 150g dried rice noodles
  • Handful of beansprouts
  • Handful of spring onion greens, chopped

Preheat the oven to 200C (fan). In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the sauce. If using dry rice noodles, prepare your rice noodles according to the packet instructions.

Spread the cornflour out onto a large dinner plate, add the chopped chicken, then roll around until well-coated. Set aside

In a large wok, add 1 tbsp of garlic infused oil and place over a high heat. Add the red pepper and stir fry until lightly browned in places. Remove from the pan and transfer to a small plate.

Next, add the remaining 2 tbsp of garlic-infused oil and place over a high heat. Once heated, add the coated chicken and stir fry until lightly golden, then add the sauce mixture - it should sizzle excitedly.

Allow to reduce until thick and sticky, then add your rice noodles, followed by your red pepper. Stir fry until everything is well coated, then add the beansprouts and stir fry for a further 2 minutes.

Top with the spring onion greens and serve.

Tips: I find that rice noodles that also have a little tapioca starch in them are the best, as they don’t break anywhere as easily as vermicelli.
