Sesame Chicken Chili Stir Fry & {Win} With Food Lover’s Market


I love stir fry’s. All those beautiful, colorful and fresh ingredients and as a busy, working mom, it’s super quick and easy too. I’m all about convenience and this is one of the main reason’s I’ve enjoyed my shopping experience at Food Lover’s Market – Nicolway, this past week.

Not only do I find their stores visually appealing but I love the easy layout and I’ve been blown away by the quality of their food and that they cater for everybody with their fresh fruits and veg, bakery, butchery (where I got the most divine pork chops EVER) fish market, even a health food section too. Not to mention their really well priced nuts and cheeses!

So on Tuesday evening, I made our favorite. It’s a recipe I sort of made up myself after one of my favorite noodle dishes, but now being a banter, I no longer eat noodles so I substitute the noodles with zoodles. My husband and I love my Sesame Chicken Stir Fry with Red Chili.
