5 Ingredient Chicken Stir-Fry

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post as a participant in the Walmart Moms Program.

The busiest time of the year is fast approaching. With active elementary kids, a college student husband, and holidays I need all the help I can get in the kitchen! This is why making simple meals that require 5 ingredients or less and take less than 30 mins took cook is great!

One of our favorite simple meals for the family is chicken stir-fry. I usually put a pot of white rice to cook before I get started because it takes about 30 mins to cook. That gives me enough time to prep and cook my main dish!

Chicken Stir-Fry Recipe

I like to pick up all my ingredients on the weekend for the whole week at my local Walmart. I love the MarketSide Sesame Ginger Dressing for a quick sauce for our stir-fry. The best part is choosing and mixing up the type of veggies you include in this dish. I like buying the already mixed stir-fry bags of veggies. Frozen or fresh is just personal preference. I like having a huge bag of frozen veggies during our busy schedule because it allows me to make this meal in the spur of the moment. In other words when the hubs and I forget to plan a meal for the day. Hey it happens!

Making the sauce for this stir-fry is so easy and so delicious. You can use the dressing straight out the bottle but I really like having a thicker sauce so I add a little cornstarch to thicken it.

I sauté the veggies in a little vegetable oil and remove from the pan to add to the chicken later.

When I cook the chicken I use the same pan and I like adding half of the sauce to lock in some flavor while it cooks. If my chicken renders too much liquid I drain out the liquid before adding the veggies.

I add the veggies once the chicken is well done. It helps to have the chicken cut into small cubes. I add the remaining dressing mixture until well mixed.

I love this easy recipe because it’s perfect for make ahead or last minute family dinner. I serve it over rice and the family loves it!
