    At times like this, I swear by the Blue Dragon sachets of stir fry sauce, the chow mein one is 1 point a serving, and tastes spot on for a fakey chinese takeaway fix!

    The lemon peking one is gorgeous too, that's 1.5 a serving.

    Hope you curb your chinese desires!!!!!

    I quite often go for the chicken chow mein..

    1 pack of straight to wok noodles
    1 sachet of Chow Mein Sauce
    1 thinly sliced chicken breast
    mushrooms
    grated carrot [longways if that makes sense]
    Mange tout if I ever remember to buy it in the supermarket...!

    Total of 8.5 points, and that'll easily do 2 people :)

    Without the chicken, if you bulk it up with the veggies, it's 6 points for the whole lot :D

    Yeah as long as you share it;

    Plain noodles 4 points
    Chicken and Pineapple 3points
    Egg fried rice 10 points

    half it all :)

    or you can have chicken chow mein for 7.5 half it and add half a rice either way you can still enjoy your usual stuff from chinese as long as you stick within points and remember portion size :)

    Ermm if i remember correctly;

    sweet and sour chicken balls is 10 points
    Egg Fried Rice is 10 points
    Chicken chow mein is 7.5 points

    Sooo half it; 5 points, 5 points and say 4 points to be on safe side, sooo 14 points :) probably say 15 / 16 to be on the safe side so as long as you have either 0 point soup / jelly throughout the day to keep you going then see no reason why you can't have this, just got to limit yourself during the day to save for treat in evening, or save points for next few days after / before to counter for it :) xxx
