This is one of my favorite stir-fry recipes. Simple, quick, and easy. I like to serve this over rice.
Prepare Chicken. Add a bit of olive oil to a skillet and the diced chicken. Cook this about three minutes. The chicken will not be done yet, it will finish cooking with the vegetables. If you happen to have rotisserie chicken; just dice and add.
Vegetables. The crisp vegetables that take a bit longer to cook like carrots and onions get added to the pan now. After these have cooked approximately 4 minutes add the remaining vegetables and continue to cook another 4 minutes. Cook them just until they are tender crisp.
Time for the Sauce. Add the chicken stock or Packet Knorr Homestyle Stock concentrate, sweet soy sauce glaze, water, and corn starch. (Dissolve the corn starch in the water before adding).

Tips for Making the Best Stir Fry
• Prepare the ingredients before starting the recipe. • Cut up the chicken or other protein used into bite-sized pieces. Do not overcook the protein as it can become tough. • Sauté the vegetables until tender crisp. Cooking them too long can result in a soft and mushy texture. • Soy sauce can be salty, so start with a little and add more to taste. • Make sure that the sauce comes to a boil to allow for thickening. • If you like spice with your stir fry, add a bit of red pepper flakes. • Prefer a sweeter sauce? Add a bit of honey, brown sugar, or pineapple juice.
Can this Chicken Stir Fry with Vegetables be Frozen?
• Yes, just place in an airtight container and free for up to three months. Note: the vegetables will not be as crisp, but this will still taste great. • When ready to eat, just remove from the freezer, thaw, and either microwave a few minutes or heat up in a non-stick skillet.
