Family Chicken Stir-Fry
photo by Derf2440
- Ready In:
- 3⁄4 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce (or Bragg's Liquid Aminos if you have any)
- 2 garlic cloves (crushed, minced)
- 1⁄2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (or more if you feel like splurging!)
- 1 bunch fresh broccoli
- 1⁄2 large sweet onion
- 1⁄2 green bell pepper
- 1 cup carrot (sliced)
- 1 (3 ounce) can mushrooms, sliced
- Cut the chicken into 2 inch cubes. Toss them into a ziplock (or generic -- lol!) bag with the soy sauce. Set the bag in the fridge while you chop your veggies.
- Cook the rice according to the directions on the package.
- Chop broccoli into bite size pieces (larger if you want to watch your family work for their meal!). Slice the onion into rather thick slices. Cut bell pepper into 1 inch cubes. (Tired yet?). Slice the carrotsand drain the mushrooms -- phew!
- Heat the olive oil in your wok and toss in the chicken. Cook until just a little pink is left. Throw in the onions and cook until the meat is done. Put the garlic, broccoli, peppers, and carrots, in the wok and cover for 4-5 minutes.
- The mushrooms go in last for just a couple of minutes. Put some rice and the stir fry on the plate and devour with any sauces you'd like to add (teriyaki and soy sauce are my family's choices).
- Nudge the person beside you and motion for them to go clean up your mess. :D.

Excellent recipe! Really delicious. I used sugar snap peas instead of broccoli, and red instead of green pepper. I used the bragg aminos which has a fantastic taste. I used 3 instead of 2 garlic cloves, and a yellow instead of sweet onion. I added a good pinch of majorem after adding the veggies. Toward the end, I added a generous cup of chicken broth that I thickened with a pinch of xanthan gum. I can't wait to make this again because it was so delicious, and it does actually feed 4 people with just 3/4 of a pound of chicken!
This was very good! My 14 year old son said it was one of his favorites. Very easy to whip up on a busy weeknight and a great way to get fresh vegetables into your kids. The only change I made was to add some crushed red pepper flakes and ground ginger to the chicken when browning. Thanks so much for this recipe!
mmm mmm this is a wonderful chicken stirfry! Lots of flavour from all the good stuff in it!! I just made half a recipe for the two of us and it was a huge hit, DH loves it. the timing is perfect all the veggies were tender crisp, the only thing I did diferently was to cut back on the soy sauce and I did add 2 teaspoons of corn starch to thicken the sauce, also used fresh mushrooms. Thanks for posting I will be making this often.

I'm a 32 year old mommy to an amazing 8 year old boy, Aidan. We live in WV, and moved in with my parents after my divorce and some health problems. In the photo with me are my dad and my son. We're raising two cute kitty cats, Pete and Polly, who have very opposite personalities. Both were rescues. Polly is 4 months old and Pete is a year and 1/2. I'm battling an eating disorder that I've had for almost 13 years now. My highest weight was 220lbs and my lowest was 76. Neither were healthy, so now, my cooking reflects a desire to avoid those weights. Eventually, I hope to work with people who struggle with eating disorders. I have my BA in Psychology. I'm not employed right now, due to a couple of seizures, but I'm getting very antsy and ready to get back out to earn my keep. For now, earning my keep is pretty much cleaning and cooking. My son is sooooooooooooooo healthy and loves fruits and veggies, so he's fun to feed! He's a smart kid too and gets in trouble in school as a result. haha! When he grows up, he's going to be a chef, he says, and we watch Take Home Chef together. I'm addicted to zaar and try to choose new recipes weekly. It irritates my family some, because often a good recipe gets forgotten, but I almost always find them again. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
