Fresh turkey, is completely underrated and shouldn't be confined to Christmas. It's low in fat, high in protein, packed with vitamins and great value for money. It’s also very easy to cook and, with the right ingredients, can be used to make delicious easy family meals. As a family, we’re getting really into turkey, enjoying it in recipes where we would have eaten chicken or pork.

Sticky Turkey & Orange Stir-Fry 

  • Time:  10 mins prep + 10 mins cooking (roughly)
  • Cost:  £1.88 per serving
  • Calories:  483 per serving
  • Serves:  3 adults or 2 adults & 2 children


  • 375g fresh turkey steaks, sliced into strips 
  • Juice & zest of one large orange (or 4 tbsp orange juice)
  • 3 tbsp of dark soy sauce (plus extra to serve)
  • 2 tbsp of runny honey
  • 1 tbsp of sunflower oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • A thumb sized piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 chilli, finely chopped (optional)
  • 2 peppers, sliced (preferable one red and one yellow)
  • 250g broccoli cut into very small florets
  • 4 x blocks of dried medium noodles
  • Fresh coriander & sliced spring onions to garnish


  1. Mix the orange juice & zest, soy sauce and honey in a large bowl. Add the turkey and stir until thoroughly coated with the marinade. (This step can be prepared the night before to enhance the flavour of the dish.)
  2. Pop a saucepan of water on the hob to bring to the boil in preparation for cooking your noodles later on.
  3. Heat the oil in a wok or frying saucepan over a medium heat. Fry the garlic, ginger and chilli for about a minute over a high heat until hot. Using a slotted spoon, remove the turkey from the bowl (reserving the remaining marinade for later on) and add to the wok. Stir fry the turkey for around 4 - 5 minutes over a high, stirring frequently, until cooked.
  4. When the turkey is cooked, add the peppers and broccoli to the pan along with the remaining marinade. At this point add your noodles to the boiling pan of water. The noodles take around 4 minutes and the vegetables take around 4 minutes and you need them to be ready at the same time. Stir the vegetables frequently during cooking. The sauce will bubble and reduce slightly.
  5. Drain the noodles (reserving a little of the cooking liquid) and add to the turkey and vegetables. Gently mix everything together thoroughly over a medium heat until well combined and the noodles are coated with the sauce. If the noodles start to stick a little add a splash of the reserved cooking water to loosen them a little.
  6. Serve immediately topped with sliced spring onions and lots of chopped fresh coriander. You may also wish to add a splash more soy sauce at the table to taste.
