To keep the calories low, we’ve used a home-made punchy sauce that’ll give your veggies some serious flavour. We’ve thrown carrot, broccoli and courgette into our stir-fry pan, and you can mix up the veggie combinations as much as you want (that’s the beauty of a stir-fry!). We love to use broccoli because it adds a satisfying crispiness to the dish.
Feeling brave? You could use a drizzle of Sriracha sauce or a sprinkling of dried chilli flakes to give this dish even more of a kick. It’s all about the spice!

Bang Bang Chicken can be enjoyed on gluten free diets, as long as you substitute soy sauce for suitable alternatives.
