How To Make This Chilli And Broccoli Noodles Stir Fry Recipe

Chinese is a popular cuisine around the UK. Particularly in the North-west, both Scousers and Mancunians named it their favourite when it comes to eating out. One in five of us will spend upwards of £40 per person when we go out for our favourite Chinese, which, considering the average Brit eats out three times a month, adds up to an almost £1500 a year spend! Why not take the #DIYDineOut challenge by skipping one of your meals out a month in favour of a night in making your favourite dishes from scratch? My mouth-watering chilli and broccoli noodles stir fry recipe will really hit the spot. And, since it makes four servings for just £9.92, it’s bang on budget, too.
