This chicken stir fry is packed with flavour, contains 3 of your 5 a day, will fill you up, but only contains less than 300 calories! The secret ingredient is one of the new SlimFast noodle boxes which are made with konjac noodles. Konjac is an Asian vegetable, whose starchy roots are made into these noodles which contain no fat or sugar and barely any calories.
The new pots are available in three flavours, Chicken Tikka Masala, Spaghetti Bolognaise, and Spicy Thai Noodles and contain between 71 – 80 calories depending on flavour. Simply microwave them for 2 minutes for a quick, and filling snack.
I’ve used a Spicy Thai Noodle pot in this recipe, adding some marinaded chicken and lots of vegetables to make it into a complete meal.

Stir frys are so quick and easy, and this idea of a mash up on a noodle pot sounds like such a great plan.
I love tarting up ready made pots and products, they are such good time savers.
I’m so short of my Asian cuisine cooking skills, since that new Chinese restaurant opened down the street. This chicken will get me back into action!

That looks just amazing… What can be better than a healthy and full of flavours? :)
Thanks Margot, it was so filling, I managed about half of it!
This recipe looks really easy to do, and delicious. I’ll have to give it a go, I think my daughter will love it :)
Super easy and super delicious Lynette
It’s a great idea to use a noodle pot for a stir fry. Really makes for a quick and easy snack. What could I use instead of chicken – especially a vegetarian option. Could I use tofu?
Tofu would be great Marcus!
Riffing on these noodle pots sounds like a great idea. Any ideas for the other pots?
Riffing – such a great way to describe the recipe! I added lots of tomatoes and roasted squash to the bolognese pot.
Such a great looking quick and simple recipe. Thanks!
Glad you like it Patricia.

That looks totally my kind of meal right now. Must look out for these.
I was really impressed by them. If you tart them up they are very good.

I love a good stir fry and I haven’t had one in a while either! I would sub in some tofu to make it veggie friendly for myself, but it looks great!
Tofu would work just great. We use it often!
That does look very delicious indeed. Chicken and noodles are such a classic combination.
It was super good, and very filling without the calories!
