Chinese Chicken Noodles
From ‘Fussy Eaters Recipe Book’ Ebury Press £14.99
“Don’t be afraid to try out new tastes on your child. Here is a delicious Chinese chicken noodles recipe. It’s interesting because young children often like unusual flavours like curry, olives and teriyaki sauce. Try these chinese chicken noodles flavoured with a mild curry and coconut sauce. For adults you can increase the amount of chilli and curry.” Annabel.

2 tbsp vegetable oil
3 spring onions, finely sliced
