Quick Recipe for Chicken Stir Fry




With tons of fresh vegetables and the tastiest sauce made with honey, soy sauce, and toasted sesame oil, this simple chicken stir fry recipe is sure to please. Making this nutritious dish only takes 20 minutes, and your family will love the flavor.

It’s simple as it gets is this chicken stir fry. Cubed chicken breast is the first ingredient; however chicken thighs can work nicely. I like to start with the chicken because, as it browns, it adds flavor to the skillet. The vegetables absorb some of the taste when it is added, and they later create their own flavor. These layers are what give this simple recipe such complexity. The sauce is then ready to be served.
