Chicken Stir Fry features your favorite chicken and veggies in the tastiest, sweet and tangy sauce. You’ll love this 30-minute meal!

Why is stir fry dinner so underrated? Instead of fussing and cooking your meats, veggies, and favorite carbs separately, you can cook them all together in the same pot! Prep and cook fairly quickly, and clean up super fast, so you can just take your time and enjoy dinner. It’s the sauce that makes this stir-fry so delicious. A little sweet, a little salty, and a lot of flavor! The best part is you can customize it with your favorite veggies. Remove the veggies you don’t like and add others you like. We recommend this 10/10!

Takeout Chicken Stir Fry is not an authentic Chinese recipe, but a typical American version of a Chinese takeout restaurant. Stay At Home Chef uses ingredients that are readily available to most people in the US and Canada, making it easy for anyone to sample world cuisine, even if they have limited travel opportunities or limited access to local ingredients.

Vegetable options:

We don’t want you to only eat the vegetables we recommend. If there are any vegetables you hate on this list, leave them off! Any veggies you like are missing, add them! Some of our favorite extra veggies are zucchini, mushrooms, and water chestnuts.

I am Willow:

If you need to limit your sodium intake, feel free to use low-sodium soy sauce in this recipe.


We kept this family-friendly recipe and omitted the spices. If you want to add anything, you can always use red pepper flakes or use hot sesame oil instead of regular sesame oil.

Can I add noodles to my takeout chicken stir fry?

certainly! You can cook ramen noodles on the side according to package directions, then add it with your sauce, stirring well while the sauce finishes cooking and thickening.

Vegetarian options:

If you don’t want to use meat, you can use tempeh or pressed cubes of tofu.

Do I need a wok?

Absolutely not! We like to use a wok when stir frying, but it’s certainly not necessary. You can use any large, heavy pan.
