Tasty Stir Fry Chicken Recipe

When I made my Stir Fry Chicken recipe one of my kids exclaimed, “This is so good! You can make this every day for the rest of my life.” Thank goodness it’s super easy to make, because if she really means what she says, then she can make it herself every day of her life. It is pretty dang good though.

A few tricks to making the best and yummiest Stir Fry Chicken is to cut up all your vegetables uniformly so they all cook at about the same time. The same goes with the chicken. Also, sometimes the chicken is very juicy and while you are frying it in the first step it can create quite a bit of liquid in the bottom of your pan.

Remember, this is a stir FRY…you shouldn’t be steaming your chicken or vegetables so pour off excess liquid (add a little oil if you need to). Also, be sure you do not overcook your veggies as you want them still slightly crunchy and not soggy when serving.
