Chinese Chicken Stir Fry

My go-to atypical non-boring homemade stir fry recipe – served in 20 minutes or less!

When take-out is not an option, I’m here to help.

Easy, simple, quick, cheap, and FLAVORFUL recipe to help you get a meal on the table as we try to sane during these weird times.

I’d say the “new normal” has officially been defined, and hope you & your families are all staying safe. I know trips to the grocery store are limited and you want to make food with things in your pantry – hopefully this is it.

With hints of Hunan Chicken, Japanese Teriyaki Chicken, and Hot Garlic Szechuan comes my homegrown go-to recipe to basic stir fry. While I’ve developed this recipe to be simple, I’ve made sure the flavors are never compromised. Enjoyed best with rice, great for meal-prepping for the week ahead, and honestly – good for anytime of the day.

And for those of you who have asked… no, I have not had Dalgona Coffee yet.

#TashTip: Add more water in Step #4 to create more “gravy” for that side of rice or lessen gravy by turning up the heat – however you choose!
