Stir Fry Ingredients

Chicken Stir Fry Sauce:

  • Water and Cornstarch: Used to thicken the sauce.
  • Chicken broth and Soy Sauce: Both low sodium.
  • Brown Sugar: To balance out the savory and acidity.
  • Shaoxing wine: This is a staple in all Chinese restaurants (dry sherry is a good substitute.)
  • Sesame oil: For that characteristic Asian flavor.
  • Ginger and Garlic: Provides wonderful aromatics and flavor. Use fresh!
  • Crushed red pepper flakes: Adds flavor and a tiny bit of heat.

For the Stir Fry:

  • Chicken: For this stir fry recipe, we use chicken breast, but chicken thighs are awesome, too.
  • Vegetables: We chose broccoli florets, red bell pepper, sweet onion, and peppery scallions, which is one of our favorite combinations in flavor and color.
  • Seasoning: Salt and pepper is all you need, since the sauce is packed with flavor.
  • Vegetable oil: For sautéing the chicken and vegetables.
  • White rice: Cooked, hot long-grained white rice is always my first choice to serve with stir fry. Fried rice is also good!

Storing Leftovers

Leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to 3 days. While this dish can be frozen, I don’t really recommend it. Once thawed, the vegetables become mushy and not the most appetizing.
