This stir fry is one of our favorite weeknight dinners: it’s easy to make, very versatile, and it’s a great way to eat a lot of veggies.

Use whatever vegetables you have on hand or whichever ones are your favorite. Basically any variety will work! I’ve even tried shredded cabbage and that was delicious.

Super Easy Stir Fry


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 large zucchini, cut into 1" strips
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 3 whole carrots, peeled and cut into 1" strips
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar (or honey)
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 pound chicken breasts, cut into 1" cubes
  • cooked white rice


  1. In a medium-sized skillet over medium heat, melt the butter.
  2. Add the zucchini, onion, carrots, and peas and cook until slightly browned and tender, about 7 minutes. Remove the vegetables to a plate and set aside.
  3. To make the sauce, stir together the soy sauce, water, garlic, brown sugar, and cornstarch.
  4. Pour 4 tbsp of the sauce over the cubed chicken in a bowl, stir, and add evenly to the hot pan. Cook until the chicken is browned and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes.
  5. Add the rest of the sauce and the vegetables back to the pan. Cook until thickened and reduced, about 5 minutes.
  6. Serve hot over rice.
