Chicken Stir Fry

If you are looking for quick and easy weeknight dinners, and I mean, who isn’t? Stir fry dinners are the way to go. You get your protein, your veggies, your everrrything in one skillet and less than 2o minutes later, the fam is at the table eating a healthy dinner. Can you say winning?

I am a huge fan of one skillet dinners and make them at least a few times each week. Meals like Cheesy Kielbasa, Rice and Broccoli Skillet, 20 Minute Skillet Chicken and Spinach Parmesan, and 20 Minute Skillet Monterey Chicken are what get me through the week, sanity intact.


This chicken stir fry is about as easy as it gets. It starts with some cubed chicken breast, although chicken thighs also work well. I like to start with the chicken when I’m making a stir fry because as they brown, they create a layer of flavor in the skillet. When the veggies get added, the pick up some of that flavor and then develop their own. It’s these layers that give so much depth to this easy recipe. And then it’s time for the sauce…

Chicken Stir Fry Sauce

I feel like the sauce can be often overlooked when making stir fry. It’s really what gives the dish so much flavor and pulls the entire meal together. The sauce I used for this stir fry is what makes it the best chicken stir fry recipe.

It’s a combination of these simple ingredients:

  • Honey – for a touch of sweetness which makes this chicken stir fry universally loved by adults and kids alike.
  • Toasted Sesame Oil – gives this dish some Asian flair. The oil is very strong so you don’t want to go crazy here.
  • Soy Sauce – it’s just not a stir fry without soy sauce! Great flavor but make sure to buy low-sodium!
  • Chicken Broth – this will thin out the sauce a bit and add some flavor.
  • Corn Starch & Water – creates thickness in the sauce when brought to a boil at the end.
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes – completely optional but adds great flavor and a bit of a kick to the dish.

Each ingredient plays a crucial role in the stir fry sauce so you really don’t want to leave anything out.


The fresh veggies and simple, delicious sauce are what really sets this stir fry apart from others. While it can be tempting to just use a bag of frozen stir fry mix, if you can, fresh is best.

What Kind of Vegetables Do You Put In Stir Fry?

I used one of my favorite stir fry veggies in this recipe, broccoli, along with carrots and peppers. You can use virtually any vegetable in a stir fry including snow peas, green beans, mushroom, onions, sugar snap peas, and green onions.

My boys are big time broccoli fans which came as a complete and total shock to me years ago when this revelation first came to light. Needless to say, they were a bit on the jealous side when I had the opportunity to visit an Earthbound Farm Organic broccoli farm a few weeks back, thanks to my ongoing partnership with Safeway.


I have been on several farm trips so far and let me tell you, they are always so eye opening. Lordy! So much work you guys! It never fails that I walk away with a newfound appreciation and respect for not just the produce, but the farmers and companies who are working so hard to get quality produce onto our tables.

After a wonderful farm tour, we headed to Carmel where we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Earthbound Farm’s Farm Stand courtesy of Safeway, Foster Farms, La Tourangelle, and, of course Earthbound Farm. We had an opportunity to sample so many amazing products and create our own salads – so fun!
