Stir fry is always one of our go-to weeknight dinners. It's such a convenient way to pack in a bunch of healthy vegetables and your favorite protein while also never disappointing in the flavor department. Also, in my opinion, it earns a well-deserved spot in the fun-to-eat category. This category is reserved for a special group of meals, the ones that really make you slow down and enjoy each bite. Think tacos, a really good salad (like the Umami Sesame Chicken Salad), or in this case a loaded stir fry.
A super sticky soy-filled sauce is key to this dish. This one has many of the classic ingredients, plus the addition of oyster sauce. It has so much flavor and really adds that little something extra. Also, the cornstarch is a must to achieve the thick sauce we're going for.
While the chicken cooks, prepare all your vegetables, slicing any that need to be cut. This recipe includes quite the colorful combo (lending to the fun-to-eat category points) and you can always add others you love as well. If mushrooms usually aren't your favorite, I really recommend trying them in this stir fry. They take on the sauce nicely and add to the perfect bite.
Then it's as easy as tossing everything together. Once you add the sauce, you will start to see the cornstarch work it's magic. You'll want to simmer everything to let the sauce thicken. A good test to see this progress is to use a spoon to gently move everything over, and then drag the spoon along the bottom of the pan. If the sauce does not immediately fill in the gap, then it should be good to remove from the heat.
Add a little crunch by topping with some scallions and sesame seeds, and you're all set to enjoy this colorful, healthy meal.
Have fun with this weeknight dinner of champs!
