Quick and easy dinner recipes are perfect when you don’t have a lot of time to cook. Along with foil packets, sheet pan and slow cooker recipes – stir fries (like Beef and Broccoli and this Kung Pao Chicken) happen a lot around here.
This Chicken Stir Fry with Broccoli and Snap Peas comes together in under 30 minutes and is super easy to customize. It’s a great clean out your fridge kind of dish. So you can totally use your favorite vegetables and protein that you like or have on hand. Red bell peppers, asparagus, some spinach or bok choy would be great in here as well.
The chicken and vegetables cook up in one pan and then get coated with a simple savory sauce. It’s deliciously sticky and made with honey, garlic, ginger, low sodium soy sauce, oyster sauce and sesame oil.
Feel free to bump up the heat with some chili garlic sauce or Sriracha if you have some in your pantry. And if not, you can find Sriracha at most large grocery stores in the ethnic aisle or an Asian food market.
Serve this with your favorite cooked rice, quinoa or noodles to make this a complete meal. Works great as a Sunday meal prep and leftovers would be so delicious for work or school lunchboxes or lunch bowls.
