Hotter than hot scotch bonnet chilli turkey stir fry

Hotter than hot scotch bonnet chilli turkey stir fry

It’s not unusual for me to do an online grocery shop and one week instead of my usual chillies I received a pack of 4 scotch bonnet chillies.

They were resigned to the bottom of the fridge so one day I plucked up the courage to give them a try and I really enjoyed the different heat from them.

Now I order them without fear!

This is one of the many recipes I created when I followed the 90 Day Plan by The Body Coach. Simply use your plans ingredient amounts instead of those shown in the recipe. There are 220 Create Your Own (CYO) friendly recipes in my app and on this website.

Ingredients for 1 serving

253 g turkey breast, cut into chunks
95 g babycorn
46 g spring onion
6 g olive oil
1 garlic clove, chopped or crushed
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
0.5 chilli, sliced, seeds or no seeds up to you!
43 ml soy sauce
76 g dried noodles
149 g broccoli
salt and pepper


  • Put your turkey into a bowl along with the garlic, scotch bonnet, cayenne pepper and soy sauce.
  • Mix everything together with a spoon and leave it to marinate for 20 minutes.
  • The longer you marinate the turkey, the more flavour ┬áit will take on.
  • Cook your noodles according to the manufacturers instruction and set aside.
  • Put a wok onto a high heat and add your olive oil.
  • When the oil is smoking add your marinated turkey with the marinade and stir fry for approximately 5 minutes before adding your vegetables and greens with 2 tablespoons of water.
  • Pop the lid on to steam for veggies, this will also help the turkey cook through.
  • After a few minutes check that the turkey is cooked through, it will be firm to the touch when it’s ready.
  • Add your noodles to the pan and carefully toss the ingredients together using tongs before serving.

Recipe Notes

  • For those on 2018 BC plans, baby corn has been approved for used in place of carrots.
  • For anyone following older BC plans, baby corn has been approved for use in place of courgettes.
  • For those on 2018 BC plans, soy sauce is a swap for other side sauces provided you choose one with equivalent macros.
  • You could use straight to wok noodles to make this recipe even quicker, just adjust the amount according to your dietary needs.
  • When I originally made this recipe I used Scotch Bonnet chillies, but I would suggest you use what you’re comfortable with.
