Chicken is rich in an array of important nutrients and can be an excellent addition to a healthy, well-rounded diet.  Low in calories but high in protein, it may be especially beneficial for weight loss, if that’s a goal for you.

What Kind of Vegetables Do You Put In Stir Fry?

I used one of my favorite stir fry veggies in this recipe, broccoli, along with carrots and peppers. You can use virtually any vegetable in a stir fry including snow peas, green beans, mushroom, onions, sugar snap peas, and green onions.

How Do You Make Chicken Stir Fry?

Chicken stir fry couldn’t be easier to make than this recipe.

  • Cut the chicken thighs (or breast) into bite-sized pieces and cook.
  • Cook vegetables until desired tenderness.
  • Prepare easy sweet and savory stir fry sauce.
  • Combine the chicken with the vegetables and sauce. Simmer until sauce thickens and ingredients are well incorporated.

TIP:  When cutting chicken, slice into small bite-sized pieces. This will ensure the chicken is full of flavor, tender and not hard to chew.


  • Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast: Both chicken breasts and chicken thighs will work in this recipe.
  • Bell Pepper: Red bell peppers are ideal for their subtle sweetness and vibrant color. But any color works!
  • Carrot: I’ve cut the carrot into thin rounds for convenience, but you can also julienne it.
  • Broccoli: I think a pop of green is always necessary in a classic chicken stir fry. Don’t love broccoli? Swap in sugar snap peas!
  • Onion: Either white or yellow onions work in this recipe.
  • Ginger & Garlic: Essential aromatics for any stir-fry recipe.
  • Green Onion & Sesame Seeds: A sprinkle of green onion and sesame seeds on the serving plate is the perfect finishing touch.

What can I serve Chicken Stir Fry with?

Serve the stir fry with your favorite side. A plain fried rice, white rice or noodles will all work great as there are vegetables and protein in the stir fry already.


Although this recipe is pretty straight forward, there’s a few things to keep in mind to make
this ‘the best’ chicken stir-fry yet.

  • Avoid undercooked ingredients by stir-frying the chicken and vegetables separately. Trust me, it makes all the difference.
  • Avoid overcooking the vegetables by sauteing them until they’re slightly tender, yet still crisp in the third step. That way they won’t become too soft as you continue cooking them with the sauce.
  • Let the sauce simmer for a good minute or so. It needs time to heat up in the pan to thicken properly.
