This easy stir fry recipe is made with cubed skinless and boneless chicken breasts. They’re seared in a skillet with sesame oil for a few minutes to achieve a beautiful golden brown crust around the outside before the broccoli and stir fry sauce is added.

The key to cooking chicken for stir fry is to not overcrowd the pan. If this happens, the meat will steam instead of sear and you won’t achieve the delicious crust or golden brown color.

How to make stir fry with chicken and broccoli

Heat the sesame oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the cubed chicken breasts. Cook for about 10 minutes before adding in the garlic, ginger, coconut aminos, and honey.

Lastly, add the broccoli into the skillet. Cook until it’s bright green and tender. Add the sesame seeds in the last minute of cooking and stir. Plate the chicken and broccoli stir fry over rice or noodles and enjoy!

Stir fry is best served over white or brown rice, cauliflower rice, quinoa, or noodles. Soba, egg, or udon noodles are best but feel free to use a long pasta if that’s all you have at home! To keep the recipe gluten free, serve the stir fry over rice noodles, your grain of choice, or sauteed salad greens.

Making this for a copycat Chinese takeout dinner? Serve the stir fry next to takeout favorites like fried rice, Mongolian beef, and chicken chow mein.

Feel free to double or triple the batch to use for easy and healthy weekday lunches. It would be so filling next to some white rice and honey roasted carrots or roasted vegetables.


  • Add ins – Feel free to add more to this stir fry recipe. Mushrooms, cauliflower, cashews, almonds, chickpeas, or carrots would all be delicious additions.
  • Instead of chicken – Make my soy free beef and broccoli stir fry or swap the chicken for firm tofu cubes.
  • If you don’t need soy free – Feel free to use soy sauce or tamari instead of coconut aminos in the sauce.

Storing leftovers

The leftovers store well in airtight containers in the fridge for 3 or 4 days.

To reheat, simply heat the leftover stir fry in a microwave for 1 or 2 minutes or in a skillet over medium heat. Stir with a little added water or more sesame oil until warmed through.
