How To Make Chicken And Vegetables Stir Fry In A Wok – Best Tips & Tricks
1. Prep the chicken and veggies before heating up the pan
Cut the ingredients into bite-sized pieces so they’ll get cooked quickly and evenly.
Make sure you don’t squeeze too many inside because they won’t cook uniformly and at the same time.
It’s worth noting that you shouldn’t put more than a pound of meat in the pan.
2. It’s easy to overcook so keep an eye on the timer
Stir-frying is a fast process because it implies cooking small pieces of ingredients at high temperature. So keep an eye on your timer because it’s easy to overcook.
It shouldn’t take the meat longer than 12 minutes to get cooked through and the veggies to turn crisp-tender.
3. Marinate the chicken
I know I said this is going to be a quick and easy chicken stir fry recipe, but if you really want to make the best of it, you need to marinate the meat before cooking.
This will make it tender and it will be bursting with flavors (trust me, it’s crazy delish).
Also, the marinating process is quite easy.
Just mix the chicken with a bit of olive oil, garlic, ginger and any other seasoning you might like. Then cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (overnight is best).
And that’s it.
With this simple tweak, you’ll make the best chicken stir fry. Trust me when I say, your friends and family will love you for it 🙂
4. Heating the wok
Before you stir-fry chicken and veggies, you need to heat the wok on your stove’s highest temperature.
But how do you know when it’s hot enough to cook?
Well, there’s a simple trick here.
Start drizzling water drops and when you see them evaporate within 1-2 seconds that’s when you should begin stir-frying.
5. Changing the ingredients of this recipe
This easy chicken stir fry recipe is quite flexible, which means that you can tweak it to your taste.
So if you don’t like the veggies I used, just swap them with your favorites. And here are some of the most popular: mushrooms, green beans, snow peas, asparagus, carrots, bok chow etc
Heck, you can even change the meat if you want.
