My fast and easy Asian inspired Chicken Stir Fry is loaded with fresh Farmer’s Market veggies! Chop the veggies ahead of time and this dish comes together in a snap! 2-3 servings.
- 12 oz. boneless chicken breast
- 1 carrot, cut into matchsticks
- 1/2 celery stalk, sliced
- 1/2 small red bell pepper, cut into matchsticks
- 1 bunch baby bokchoy, chopped
- 4 button mushrooms, sliced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 bunch scallions, sliced
- 2 tsp. sesame seeds, toasted
- 2 tsp. cornstarch
- 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1/8 cup Ponzu sauce
- 1/8 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 tsp. powdered ginger
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
- 1 tbsp. sesame oil
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 6 oz. Chinese noodles (I used Hang’s noodles, my favorite!)
Note: I always choose low sodium products, but if you are not limiting salt and prefer to use the regular version go for it! I do salt the pasta water in case you were wondering.
Chop all of the veggies. Toast the sesame seeds and set aside. Whisk together the chicken broth, Ponzu sauce, soy sauce, garlic powder, ginger, pepper flakes and the cornstarch. Boil water for the pasta and heat a large skillet over medium heat.
Sear the chicken breast on all sides in 1 tbsp. olive oil. Transfer to a cutting board and slice into 1/4″ medallions, then return to the skillet. Add all of the vegetables, reserving a few of the scallions for garnish. Add the sesame oil and saute for 3 minutes. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
Add the chicken broth mixture to the skillet and continue cooking until it begins to thicken, 3-5 minutes. Drain the cooked pasta and add to the skillet. Toss well and cook for 1 more minute to incorporate.
Serve on a large platter, and garnish with the reserved scallions and toasted sesame seeds.
How easy is that? You can substitute any veggies you like in this dish. Zucchini and onions would be a great addition, as would cabbage. Beef or pork would also stand in for the chicken. Have fun creating your own favorite version!
