Raise your hand if you love a good stir fry. (My hand is raised high – and so are my family’s hands too.)

Stir fries are a busy weeknight’s lifesaver. They are simple, healthy and quick. A no brainer really if you think about it. All it takes is a little prep (those precut bags of veggies at the grocery store come in real handy if you are really short on time) and a good wok.

Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry | Aggie's Kitchen

I’ve been lacking in the good wok department for quite some time. I have not had much luck with woks over the years for some reason. They have always seemed to get warped and become lopsided on my cooktop and the inside of the wok gets a little sad looking after some time.

Swiss Diamond recently sent me their 14″ Nonstick Wok to test out and I am so impressed. The quality is amazing. It’s a huge wok (and comes with a glass lid) so you can easily make stir fries packed with veggies your whole family will love – like this Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry I made this week. Their nonstick coating is made with real diamond crystals (pretty cool, huh) and they are made of heavy-duty cast aluminum with a flat bottom so no warping, tipping or spinning will be happening.

I’m excited to offer the same wok to one lucky reader too – see the below the recipe to enter the giveaway!

Because of their unique nonstick coating, very little oil is needed when cooking, keeping it a little extra healthy and lower in calories. Love that (and love that little coconut oil heart that I found in my pan too!).

This Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry recipe is very basic, perfect for a family that includes little ones. The chili oil in the sauce gives just a little bit of kick but it’s not enough to overpower the dish (that’s where a bottle of sriracha on the table comes in). The orange marmalade adds just a bit of sweetness and the garlic and ginger is always essential. Stir fries are fun to make and the vegetables are always interchangeable. Just make sure you have everything prepped and ready to go before you start.

Enjoy the recipe!

Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 3 tb low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tb orange marmalade
  • 1 tb minced ginger
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili oil
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil (or other high heat cooking oil)
  • 1lb chicken, cut in thin strips
  • 3-4 cups broccoli and cauliflower florets (I used a bag of Eat Smart pre-cut vegetables)
  • 1 yellow pepper, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • Salt & pepper

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, orange marmalade, ginger, garlic and chili oil. Set aside.
  2. Heat wok over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon coconut oil (or other high heat cooking oil) into wok.
  3. Season your chicken with salt and pepper. Increase wok heat to medium high (I put it at about a 7 on my stovetop). Place half of your chicken into your wok and let cook until browned, about 4-5 minutes. Once that batch of chicken is browned, take out and place on a plate. Add remaining chicken to wok and cook until browned, another 4-5 minutes. Take out chicken and place on plate.
  4. Add onions and peppers to wok. Cook for about 1 minute, stirring with a wooden or plastic spoon or spatula. Add broccoli and cauliflower to wok and cook, stirring for about 1-2 minutes. Add chicken back into wok, along with sauce. Cook for about 3-4 minutes, tossing frequently so that all veggies are cooking and being covered in sauce.
  5. Serve hot over brown rice.

Stir fry happens quick so it is very important to have your sauce and all of your chicken and vegetables prepped and ready to cook before you start cooking.

    I take my stir fry cues from my husband who does not like every veggie, but loves seafood, chicken, beef and other protein sources. I guess scallops with onion and mixed peppers is our favorite.
