Fakeaway Homemade Chicken Stir Fry

We all look forward to our weekly takeaway, our treat after a long day or when you just feel like a hearty meal. Enjoying a nice, filling takeaway does not mean you can’t upgrade it to a better and tastier homemade version. Our Chicken Stir Fry recipe is so easy and quick it might just convince you to never have takeaway stir fry again!
