    Made this this evening, needed a bit more honey, but otherwise was delish! and so easy, the addition of the cornflour makes a lovely thick glossy sauce. I also substituted green beans for broccoli. However, all plates were cleared and seconds were demanded !

    This is taken straight out of 101 one pot recipes. A book I highly recommend but felt it should be credited.

    A basic and easy stir fry meal--perfect for a light supper or when you've had a hellish day (don't forget the wine).
