Chicken Vegetable Stir Fry

Chicken Vegetable Stir Fry Easy Recipe

Confession… I am a lazy cook! That is why most of the recipes in my cookbook take 15-30 minutes and one pan to make. It is why I absolutely love stir-frys and let me children learn early how to help prepare and cook them.

My chicken vegetable stir fry includes chicken, onions, squash, and broccoli, but can be substituted with any of your favorite veggies! is one of the fast dinners I make when we are on the run. It isn’t fancy, but it tastes great and the kids always eat it!

How to Serve it

Chicken vegetable stir fry is excellent served over rice (if you eat rice), and we usually top it with coconut aminos (similar to soy sauce).

It is a very versatile recipe and different seasonings can change the taste to make a completely different dish. I’ve used many of my homemade herb and spice blends on this stir-fry and some of my favorites to use with this are: curry powder, cajun seasoning and Italian seasoning.

If you want a quick and healthy meal idea, give this one a try!

  1. perfect quick dinner. I wish more people understood cooking isn’t hard and it need not take all day long. Its better to make a meal like this than go to some drive thru and get some mashed up cardboard and chemicals and say that’s dinner…

  2. Imma try this tonight with fresh corn instead of broccoli

  3. Can coconut oil be subbed for butter? Also, once chicken is cooked, do you remove it
    from wok to stir fry veggies?

    • You can totally use coconut oil for butter, it will just taste slightly less savory. Sometimes I add a pinch more salt. And yes, you can remove the chicken.
