Making Chicken Stir-Fry
I love that this chicken stir fry recipe can be so versatile! Here are some tips on what you can add/use for this dinner recipe:
- This chicken recipe will work with either chicken thigh or chicken breast.
- Toss in all of your favorite veggies such as cauliflower, sprouts, yellow zucchini, and eggplant.
- Feel free to serve the stir-fry over rice instead of adding the rice noodles. My husband always requests for noodles or chow-mein, but I prefer a side of white rice.
Whatever ingredients you choose to add to this stir fry, it’s going to taste amazing!
Homemade Teriyaki Sauce
I have a serious weakness for any recipe with the word ‘teriyaki’ in it! This recipe is one of our favorites and for a good reason – it’s unbelievably delicious! It’s made with soy sauce, water, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, sesame seed oil and vinegar. The sauce really makes this dish – it’s easy to make, not too sweet and bursting with flavor. I use this teriyaki sauce recipe for any recipe that calls for the bottled variety. Lately, I’ve been watching my sugar and cutting down on the amount added. You can reduce the sugar down to 1 tbsp if you’re watching your intake.

Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry Recipe (video)
- 1 to 2 pound chicken, breast or thigh
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 5 to 6 white mushrooms, sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1 cup sugar snap peas
- 1 large zucchini, sliced
- 1 small head of broccoli
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon sesame seed oil
- 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger
- 4 garlic cloves, finely minced
- Rice noodles or white/brown rice
- Prepare rice noodles according package instructions; or, prepare white or brown rice to serve with the stir-fry. Keep warm until ready to serve.
- Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl: brown sugar, soy sauce, water, sesame seed oil, vinegar, ginger (I use fresh ginger and mircoplane to create finely ground ginger) and minced garlic; set aside.
- Preheat a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add thinly sliced chicken breast or chicken thigh. Cook the chicken for 7 to 9 minutes, stirring often, until completely cooked. Remove into a large bowl and keep warm.
- In the same pan, prepare the vegetables in batches to prevent overcrowding. I like to prepare the onions and mushrooms together, bell pepper and snap peas, zucchini and broccoli. Cook each batch for 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables reach desired doneness. Remove each batch into the same bowl as the chicken.
- Once all vegetables are cooked, pour the prepared sauce into the pan and bring up to a simmer. Simmer the sauce for 5 minutes, allowing the sugar to caramelize and thicken. Return all of the vegetables and chicken back into the pan and coat in the sauce. Continue cooking the mixture for a few more minutes for the sauce to season the ingredients.
- Add the rice noodles to the pan, if desired and toss to coat with the sauce. Alternatively, serve the stir-fry over rice.
