Ingredients You Need for the Stir Fry :

  • Chicken Breast – make sure to purchase boneless, skinless chicken breast for easy prepping! You can use boneless, skinless chicken thighs if you want or heck, swap out the protein altogether for shrimp, beef, or tofu!
  • Olive Oil – we know lots of recipes call for sesame oil, so if you want to use that go for it! We kept things ultra basic with the most common cooking oil – olive oil.
  • Broccoli – broccoli is the star vegetable of this stir fry. You need 8 cups of broccoli florets.
  • Carrots – we used shredded carrots for this recipe, but you can easily swap them for slices if you have whole carrots at home.

INSTRUCTIONS

How do you make chicken stir fry from scratch, you ask? Chicken and vegetable stir fry is a quick and easy dinner idea and the reason is that it takes less than 30 minutes!

Once you’ve got your veggies and chicken chopped and your sauce made you’ve only got a few steps left.

  1. Prep Chicken and Veggies: cut chicken and veggies into bite-sized pieces, making sure everything is around the same size.
  2. Make Sauce: place the ingredients for the stir fry sauce in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Leave out the water and cornstarch.
  3. Sauté Chicken: cook chicken breast over medium/high heat for about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add Stir Fry Vegetables and Sauce: Add in your veggies and sauce. Stir fry chicken and vegetables 2-3 minutes before adding the sauce. Bring sauce to a boil and then, reduce heat and let simmer for 6-8 minutes. Option to cover chicken and vegetables for a few minutes to help cook faster.
  5. Thicken Sauce: create cornstarch slurry by whisking together cornstarch and water. Then, add it to the stir fry and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
