Who doesn’t love a good stir fry. Crisp vegetables mixed with an Asian inspired sauce. All cooked in one pan and made in less than 30 minutes? Count me in.

This stir fry is super healthy thanks to all of the vegetables. I also added lean chicken breast for some protein. This stir fry isn’t loaded with tons of sauce making it a light weeknight meal you won’t feel guilty about eating.

Stir fry’s are so easy. That’s why I love them. They are also very versatile and can be made in many different ways depending on what you have on hand. I made this vegetable stir fry with mushrooms, onions, broccoli and carrots.

This is a super easy meal that can be made in under 30 minutes! Everything is made in one pan making for an easy clean up.

It is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. If your like me and you like a little extra spice toss in some more red pepper flakes and sriracha.

Make this a quick vegetarian meal by omitting the chicken and the fish sauce. Non-vegetarians can mix it up and use shrimp in this stir fry.

When stir frying it is important to work with a hot pan. This way the vegetables get nice and caramelized on the outside but still have a nice crunch. You don’t need special equipment for this stir fry just a large skillet will do.

  • I am always up for a veggie-loaded chicken stir-fry! This looks sooo simple, yet so down-home, stick-to-your-ribs good! Perfect for a busy weeknight when I’m craving comfort food! Pinned.

  • Stir fries are the best! Quick, and so healthy. They’re one of the few asian meals I like better homemade over take out. Your version sounds so good! I love your stir fry sauce too. Yum!

    • Hi Lindsey,

      Sorry about that I thought I had mentioned that but did not in my instructions.

      “Stir in peanut butter, soy sauce, sriracha, fish sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and sesame seeds. Bring to a low simmer and cook for 1-2 minutes.
      Slice cooked chicken and add back into the pan. Toss to coat the chicken. Cook until chicken is warmed through (1-2 minutes). Garnish with extra sesame seeds and serve immediately.”

      Hope this helps, please let me know if you have any other questions!

      Thanks,

      Kelley

    My fiance and I love this recipe. We leave out the fish sauce (mostly because we didn’t have any on hand the first time we made it) and triple the sauce recipe, keeping the proportions the same, because we like everything to be well coated.

    I made this recipe the other day following it pretty much exactly as is but I doubled the sauce recipe. I also added some extra siracha and a habanero pepper because I like it really spicy! I’m glad I doubled the sauce because it would have been pretty dry had I not. Even after doubling the sauce I still added a couple of extra splashes of soy sauce. It wasn’t over sauced prepared this way at all. My only “complaint” is that it didn’t have the strong peanut sauce taste I was looking for so next time I will just add some extra PB. Otherwise this was really easy and tasty and I will definitely add this to my dinner rotation.

    I made this tonight — very well received by everyone! I’ll definitely be making it again. (Like some of the others mentioned: I did double the sauce. Which was nice, I don’t like a super saucy stir-fry, but it seemed about the right amount to coat everything. I’m pretty sure I used more vegetables than called for though, so it might be just right if I’d followed your instructions exactly.)

  • Amber

    Wow! This is now my fav stir fry recipe. Better than take out. My husband and I loved it and will probably eat it almost weekly. I omitted the red pepper flakes because I got too excited with the siracha.

  • Krista

    This recipe was okay. I really had to add more sauce to get any sort of flavor. (And I had originally doubled the sauce). I added eggs and white rice as well at the end.
