Weeknights in my house are always so busy. Between homework, kids extracurricular activities (via Zoom these days), and just keeping up with the constant housework, I rarely have any time to spare.

Of course, easy is not the only thing I look for in a dinner recipe. I also want my dinners to be healthy and full of fresh veggies. Oh, and it has to taste good. Quick, nutritious and tastes amazing are what I want for my family in a weeknight dinner. I know it can be a challenge to find a recipe that checks all my boxes! But guess what? This Chicken Stir Fry recipe does it! I make it all the time and one that I still look forward to serving (and eating, too).

When you first look at this recipe, you may be thinking, “that looks like a lot of ingredients” and well, it is. But don’t let that deter you! It is not hard at all, I promise. Most of the ingredients in this simple chicken stir-fry are vegetables and you can prepare them all together in just a few minutes.

I like to start prepping my chicken stir fry recipe by gathering up the veggies and slicing them all at once. You can also just get the pre-sliced mushrooms and save yourself a step!

While I have the cutting board out, I cut the chicken breast into small bite sized pieces as well. I then whisk together the cornstarch, water, soy sauce, chicken broth, honey, ginger and sesame oil and add the chicken pieces to this marinade sauce. See, you have already prepped almost all of the ingredients and it probably only took about 5 minutes! Time to start cooking.

The chicken and marinade are cooked in a skillet until the chicken has browned and is no longer pink. Remove the chicken but keep the marinade and browned bits on the bottom of the pan as they will add flavor to the vegetables in the next step. The peppers, broccoli and carrots go into the skillet first as they are more firm and will take longer to cook. Once the first round of vegetables has cooked, the mushrooms and snow peas can be added in.

I like my chicken stir fry to have a good amount of sauce so I opt to add extra chicken broth. If you like a thicker sauce, skip the chicken broth at the end or just add a splash.  Of course, if you want more sauce, then add extra broth.

Next, add the chicken back to the skillet; toss everything together and your stir fry is ready to serve!

You can definitely eat this chicken stir fry dish as is – no extras needed! It has so many vegetables and a lot of chicken so it will definitely be enough food to fill you up. I do often serve it over a bed of rice or with some noodles. To save even more time, get the rice that you can cook in the microwave. It’s super easy and makes for a perfect, simple weeknight side dish!

Sprinkle some sesame seeds or a few fresh chopped green onions (or both!) on top of your finished Chicken Stir Fry recipe. Your family will be very impressed when they sit down to eat and see this incredible dinner in front of them. When did you have time to make such an elaborate meal? Did you secretly order take out? What is the special occasion for such an amazing dinner? It’s just a quick, delicious and healthy weeknight dinner that is sure to impress. Enjoy!

    Who does not love a good stirfry!
    Is that forrest mushrooms? Love the look of the more brownish hat 🙂

  61. 01/15/2021 / 5:10 am

    This looks so good! I love fresh ginger and brown sugar in the sauce. I’m not a mushroom fan. Do you recommend a different veggie? Or should I just double up on the broccoli?

  62. 01/15/2021 / 4:50 am

    The only thing I would adjust is to omit the mushrooms, but that is just because I don’t like mushrooms!
