Summer has never tasted better with all oceans

With summer just around the corner, the nights are getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and the atmosphere is getting very, very festive.

Skip the take out, this Chicken Stir Fry is the real deal. Packed with fresh sautéed veggies, flavorful chicken, and an addictive savory sauce all ready in 30 minutes or less!

When you’re looking for a quick weeknight dinner or a meal to clear out those leftover veggies, a chicken stir fry always comes through. This chicken stir fry is loaded with delicious flavor thanks to the sauce we use. Other seasonings that go really well with this stir fry are crushed red pepper flakes (if you like some heat) and/or toasted sesame seeds.

For this recipe, we add fresh ginger and fresh garlic to further enhance flavors.

Instructions

SAUCE: In a small bowl, add the cornstarch and soy sauce. Whisk with a fork until smooth. Add in the oyster sauce, chicken stock, brown sugar, sesame oil, and a few cracks of pepper (to taste). Whisk until smooth and set aside.

PREP: Prepare the chicken and veggies. Cut the chicken into small chunks. Finely chop the garlic and ginger. Slice the onion into thin strips. Peel and then very thinly slice the carrot into diagonal slices (important the slices are thin so they cook in time). Chop the broccoli into small pieces, very thinly slice the pepper. The veggies need to be thinly sliced (or chopped small) so they can cook through quickly.

COOK: Add the vegetable oil to a very large nonstick skillet or wok. Heat to high heat. Once hot, add garlic and ginger, stirring quickly to keep from burning. Add onion. Cook, stirring constantly for 1 minute or until onion begins to soften. Add chicken and stir for 1 minute until surface goes from pink to white. Add in the carrots, sugar snap peas, broccoli, and red pepper. Stir constantly for 1 minute. Pour in the sauce and cook, stirring near constantly for another 2-3 minutes or until sauce has thickened, chicken is cooked through, and veggies are crisp tender.
