Chicken Stir Fry

If you are looking for something different for dinner, I think I have a great meal for your family.  It is not difficult to make and comes together quickly.  It's healthy and filled with a lot of veggies and breast of chicken.  If you don't eat meat, of course you could just make it with veggies.

You can use any vegetables you wish, but this is what I usually have on hand.  I make this dish often as Grayden and Samuel like it very much.  Samuel has made this for us several times and it is always delicious.  His Mama taught him how to make it.

Chicken Stir Fry

2-3 chicken breasts cubed and a little soy sauce added
1 onion diced
2 cloves garlic minced
3-4 carrots sliced
1 large red pepper diced
1 head broccoli cut into florets  ( I always have frozen on hand and use that)
1-2 stalks celery sliced
2-3 tablespoons of fresh ginger minced if you have it--I don't always have it on hand and still make this dish without it--although it gives wonderful flavor.

Using a large skillet or wok--saute' onions and chicken until done.  I use about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, but if you have peanut oil that would be tasty.

Remove the chicken and onions to a bowl and add more oil if needed to stir fry the hardest veggies first--carrots and then broccoli, then celery and follow with red pepper.  When the veggies are cooked to your liking--we like a little crunch:

Add the chicken and onion back to the veggies.

Then add a stir fry sauce--such as La Choy or Kikomann Stir Fry Sauce.  I usually add about 1/4 cup.

Serve over rice.  Enjoy! ♥


  1. This looks both yummy and easy. Pinned!

  2. It sure looks healthful and beautiful!

  3. That's a flexible recipe--so much you can do with it. Looks delicious!

  4. A new dinner idea! I haven't made that in a looong time. Time to rotate to lighter recipes for Spring and Summer. Do you have a fish market up your way? I love the Chesapeake Bay.

    1. Margot, we do have several markets here--but they are quite expensive. You have way more than we do! ♥

  5. Stirfry is my go-to-meal when I don't have much time. I keep a bag of stir-fry vegetables in the freezer and I always have rice leftover from other meals that I keep in the freezer, flattened out, so it will thaw in a hurry. Your recipe looks yummy!

    1. That's a good idea about the rice, Cathy. I always have bits of rice leftover, but have never frozen it. I'll give it a try. ♥

  6. Your stir fry has my mouth watering!! I used to stir fry often, but somehow got out of the habit and I'm not sure why. Dinner ruts seem to be easy to get in.

  7. Martha, looks good! And you can chop the vegetables earlier in the day and have them ready to go by dinner time!

  8. Hi Martha,
    I thought that I had left a comment, but my computer is giving me troubles and i get discouraged at it and it shuts off right while I am writing! ( pout pout) Well anyway this looks so delicious!! :-)
    I am sending my computer out tomorrow so I shall see you in a while!
    Many Blessings love and warmth, Linnie
