This 30 minute Chicken Stir-Fry recipe is a quick and easy meal that you can customize to your liking and have ready for dinner in 30 minutes. Juicy chicken breast and sautéed vegetables are covered in a sweet and tangy sauce to create a simple, easy and delicious weeknight dinner meal.
I love playing around with the vegetables in this dish. I usually use what I have on hand but always try to include some sliced onion, a bell pepper or two and a green vegetable. Adding more vegetables is always a plus, so play around and use whatever you like!
WHAT INGREDIENTS DO YOU NEED?
Chicken Breast - Boneless, skinless chicken breast cut in bite size pieces. About 1 inch.
Onion and Garlic - Onion and garlic is one of my favorite combos for major flavor in any dish.
Red Bell Pepper - I’m using a red bell pepper for color and because they usually have more flavor than green bell peppers.
Broccoli - Don’t skip your veggies. Broccoli goes perfect with stir-fry dishes. You can also use snap peas, green beans or zucchini.
Stir Fry sauce - The sauce is what makes it all come together. For this recipe I use a combination of soy sauce, sweet red chili sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, sesame oil and a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce.
LET'S MAKE CHICKEN STIR-FRY!
Full instructions are included in the recipe card below, but here’s a quick overview:
Step One: Prep your ingredients! Chop your onion, red bell pepper and mince your garlic cloves. Next take your chicken breast and cut them into 1 inch bite size pieces.
Step Two: Cook your chicken breast in a large skillet with a little oil. Remove to a separate plate when done.
Step Three: In the same skillet, add a little more oil and saute your onion, bell peppers and garlic. During this time go ahead and steam your broccoli florets to soften them a bit. Then add them to your skillet with the rest of the vegetables.
Step Four: Add your cooked chicken back to the same skillet. Stir to combine.
Step Five: In a separate small bowl, create your stir-fry sauce. Mix thoroughly then pour over chicken and vegetables. Allow sauce to simmer and cook with chicken and vegetables. Serve with rice or noodles and enjoy!
