We usually have a couple of sauces like soy sauce and oyster sauce always in our pantry so that recipes like this can come together in a jiffy.
I know how hard it can be to think of unique dinner recipes every day which is why once in a while, you need a back pocket recipe that you can keep going back to. And this healthy chicken stir fry recipe is fast, easy, and is made with ingredients that don’t need a trip to the grocery store.
My family is always ready to give chicken a go, in every shape and form from Old Fashioned Chicken and Dumplings to Chicken Divan, so we always have a few chicken breasts in the freezer.
How to Make Chicken Stir Fry
This recipe starts with making the chicken stir fry marinade with soy sauce, minced garlic and ground pepper and marinating the chicken in it for at least fifteen minutes. This helps build more flavour in the chicken and creates a nice base for this recipe.
The total cooking and stir frying time is only 20 minutes, and you can chop up all your ingredients while the chicken is marinating. We add some finely chopped ginger and garlic, diced onions, green and red bell peppers and a few sauces to finish this off, once the chicken is cooked. And then you just toss everything together.
We coat the marinated chicken pieces in a little cornstarch to get them nice and crisp in the pan before stir frying them with the rest of the ingredients.
This adds a little crispness to the chicken and helps keep the flavours intact. The chicken is cooked on a high flame to get a nice sear, and since these are small pieces of chicken breasts, they cook in under ten minutes.
I love using both green and red bell peppers because they add a sharp flavour with a hint of sweetness to this recipe. But feel free to mix that up with yellow or just go with one variety. You could even make this a chicken broccoli stir fry if that’s what you fancy!
Once everything is tossed in that delicious easy chicken stir fry sauce, you’ll be going at it right from the pan itself. The sauce that coats the chicken is incredibly delicious, and spooned over some steamed rice, sichuan rice or even Cauliflower Rice, it makes for the perfect dinner!
