Chicken Stir Fry

Chicken stir fry is a quick and versatile dish, bursting with flavors and colorful vegetables. Tender chicken slices are sautéed with an array of crunchy veggies, like bell peppers, carrots, and broccoli, in a savory sauce. Served over rice or noodles, it's a delicious and healthy meal option for any occasion.

Stir frying is a Chinese cooking technique which is all about cooking food in a wok over high heat. By constantly tossing the ingredients, a crispy texture is achieved without burning the food. This method is especially used for vegetables and proteins, like chicken, cut into small pieces.

Most stir-fry recipes involve 6 essential ingredients:

  1. Sauce: Packaged or homemade.
  2. Oil: Use an oil with a high smoke point such as avocado, peanut or vegetable oil.
  3. Protein: Use quick-cooking tender proteins or, for a vegetarian option, you can use tofu.
  4. Carbohydrates: Noodles or rice are most commonly included in the stir fry. Cook the carbs first before adding them to the vegetables.
  5. Vegetables: Any uniformly cut vegetables can be used in the stir fry.
  6. Garnish: Garnish with sesame seeds, cashew nuts or green onions for that extra crunch.

Tips for a fail-proof stir fry:

  • Use a wok so you can centralize the ingredients which require the most heat at the bottom and push those which require less heat up the sides of the wok.
  • Do not overload the wok and stir the ingredients constantly. If you are cooking for a large serving, stir fry the meat and vegetables separately or in batches.
  • If your ingredients start sticking to the wok, add water.
