  1. Since becoming more or less home bound due to the arrival of my little one I was craving this and have since I have made this recipe twice. The first time I added a bit too many chillis but it still tasted delicious, the second time I added more Mangetout as I find in Wagamama they’re quite stingy with them. I have yet to try this recipe with chicken but Im hoping it tastes just as nice!
