How Do You Make Chicken Stir Fry
Cook the linguine noodles cook them until al dente according to the package directions.
While the noodles are cooking, cut the raw chicken into 1” pieces. You will want to ensure all of the pieces are the same size to get evenly cooked chicken.
One good tip to keep in mind is that you can pat down the chicken before cooking it. This will help the chicken brown in the pan. Once you pat it down, sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.
Over medium-high heat, add olive oil to a large skillet, pan, or a wok. Add the chicken and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cook the chicken for 5-7 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink. Set it aside.
Add another table of olive oil into the pan, add the vegetables, and cook until they are tender. This will take approximately 5 minutes.
In the same pan with the vegetables, add the chicken and noodles and ensure everything is thoroughly heated.
Mix the stir fry sauce up in a small bowl, whisk until it is thoroughly combined. Then add it to the pan and stir to combine.
How To Make Chicken Stir Fry Sauce
One of the best things to keep in mind is honey. You don’t need much for this recipe, but adding it into your sauce makes the dish extremely tasty.
With all pepper and other spices like ginger and garlic, honey will help enhance those flavors and create a well-rounded dish.
Start with your basic hoisin and soy sauce mixing it together well. Then you can add in ginger, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Once this is all mixed together, add a dabble of honey and a few tablespoons of oil to get a nice consistency.
Chicken Stir Fry Alternatives
One of the reasons I love this dish so much is it is versatile. You can add almost anything you want to a stir fry as long as it fits in with the other flavors.
You can add in water chestnuts, bell peppers, sugar snap peas, baby corn, or even zucchini if you have any on hand. If you are worried about not having the exact ingredients, don’t worry, almost anything will do well in a stir fry.
If you are not a fan of chicken, try out shrimp, fish, pork, or beef. You can pick almost any protein to add to this dish; they each have their own unique flavor.
Can You Freeze Chicken Stir Fry?
If you are wondering any tips and tricks for freezing chicken stir fry, look no further. I have experimented with freezing this dish, and here are the best tips to keep in mind.
Planning on freezing your stir fry? I highly recommend keeping your vegetables separate from your meat and noodles for the best consistency when you thaw out your stir fry.
For the best outcome, you can freeze your sauce, noodles, and chicken together for up to three months at a time. When you’re ready to eat it, you can thaw it in your fridge overnight. Once everything is thoroughly thawed out, you can reheat the dish starting with the vegetables, followed by the noodles and chicken for five minutes in a hot pan.
If you wondered how to make a good stir fry, you should absolutely try out this recipe! It makes a great lunch or dinner, and the best thing about this dish is you can make a considerable amount. This can be a good meal for people prepping lunches throughout the week or anyone who needs to pack to-go dinners.
