This spicy chicken stir-fry with courgetti is one of my favourite weekday meals! Not only is delicious but it is also quick, cheap and easy to prepare. It’s naturally low fodmap, gluten free and refined sugar free. If you prefer, you can add the courgetti to the pan for 30-60 to heat it up. This chicken stir-fry is also great served with brown rice or noodles.
