30 Minute Chicken and Veggie Stir Fry

Chicken and veggie stir fry

The best part of cooking is ad-libbing as I create new-to-me recipes (which is why I’ll never be a real baker), and stir frys are simple and easy to customize for weeknight dinners! Sometimes coming home after a long work day and immediately making dinner can be rough, so my chicken and veggie stir fry has all the components of a fairly healthy 30 minute meal (so long as your veggies are easily prepped). The dish’s superstar ingredient is a Costco rotisserie chicken, which, when picked up right before the end of work, is still warm and juicy and flavors all of its costar elements. Buying a pre-made chicken cuts down on cooking time and adds another yummy taste to the barrage of veggies per chef’s choice (watch me cook the dish on my TikTok here). For the chicken and veggie stir fry I picked my favorite vegetables: broccoli, bell pepper, and zucchini, but the beauty of a good stir fry is how easily it can be personalized by the individual cook based on taste preferences (similar to my chicken and veggie pasta I made last month). In the TikTok you’ll see I initially measured out the different sauce elements, but I eventually added more oyster sauce and shoyu for extra flavor so follow my lead with your own flavoring options!
