This super simple healthy Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry is as delicious as it is easy to make! With a clean ingredient list and fantastic flavor, you’ll be making this chicken broccoli recipe as a takeout alternative over and over again. Enjoy!
Takeout Taste From Home
Asian takeout is definitely one of our go-to’s, but we love to know what’s going into our food, so we often find ourselves recreating our favorite takeout recipes with a clean ingredient list at home.
Our Honey Ginger Chicken Stir-Fry is my all-time fav, but our Teriyaki Chicken Stir Fry is a close second.
Making your own takeout at home has so many benefits and to be honest, tastes better too! You can even tailor the classics to be gluten-free or even vegan.
- Clean ingredients: we love using tamari instead of soy sauce in our stir-frys and will omit any refined sugar for maple syrup or honey.
- More veggies!: when in doubt, use more veggies!
- Better meat: high-quality meat just tastes better…and it’s better for you and the environment, too!
How to Make Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry
Stir fry sauce is super simple to make. Here are all of the ingredients you need to make a stir fry sauce.
- Soy sauce- feel free to sub with tamari or coconut aminos
- Honey- you can replace the honey with maple syrup
- Minced garlic
- White rice vinegar
All you need to do is place everything into a bowl (or mason jar) and mix. Make sure to leave the cornstarch out for the end of the recipe!
Prep Veggies & Chicken
Next, it’s time to dice up your veggies. The key here is getting them all around the same size so that they cook evenly. Then, thinly slice your chicken breast and set aside.
Don’t have all the veggies that this recipe uses? No problem! You can get creative with the vegetables you use. Cauliflower, green beans, or sugar snap peas would be delicious in this stir fry.
Cook Veggies and Chicken
When you are ready to stir fry everything together, you should start with your chicken.
Partially cook your diced chicken in olive oil and then remove from the pan. Then, add a little more oil and cook your veggies down. Make sure not to overcook your veggies, no one likes mushy veggies!
Add Sauce & Thicken
Once your veggies are almost cooked, move them to one side of the pan and add the sauce to the other side of the pan. Then, add 2 teaspoons of cornstarch to the sauce and whisk until dissolved. This will help your sauce thicken.
Add your chicken pieces back into the pan and mix everything together. Let simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes.
What Do You Serve With Stir Fry?
We recommend any grain as a nice recipe pairing for this stir fry! If you’re low carb or keto, a side of field greens or riced vegetables are a nice option as well. Here are some options to get ya started if you’re looking for something a little jazzier than plain rice or quinoa:
What Do You Cook First in a Stir Fry?
We recommend cooking the chicken first in this stir fry for a couple reasons. 1: it keeps your veggies from getting soggy and mushy, and 2: helps prevent cross-contamination from raw chicken on your cooked veggies. Cook your chicken first, people!

This chicken meal prep recipe will keep in the fridge for 5-7 days. Just reheat in the microwave and enjoy.

Great post! I didn’t knowral of these resources and I’m going to go check them out now!
Great recipe! It was a little on the sweeter side for me! I think next time I wont use as much honey! Is there a way I can get the sauce thicker? The 2 teaspoons of cornstarch didn’t thicken it enough? Maybe add more?
This looks simple, yet delicious. I will try it this week!
hey! ive been looking for a stir fry sauce recipe for the longest time!!!! ive tried a few online, they arent bad.. but this one is fantastic!
thanks so much! <3
YAY! So glad you loved this stir fry recipe. It’s my go to. LOVE IT!
This looks so delicious! but I was wondering could I substitute the hoisin sauce? With worcestershire sauce?
Hmmmmmmmmm. You could try. The flavors are quite different. I’d maybe use teriyaki sauce before I used worcestershire sauce!
How many servings does this recipe make? It looks delicious! I love stir fry.
4ish! I should add that to the recipe 😉
Hey Lee! Do you happen to have the protein/carb/fat break down?! Excited to cook this today!
Your photos look gorgeous! I think the composition looks great. Yet I know its a personal thing 🙂 And I am definintely going to try this. Sounds so simple and quick. Always a good thing. A rotating meal for us is an Italian Turkey Saute…ground turkey sauteed with chopped veggies of choice then mixed with herbs and tomato sauce. So simple yet delicious and it reheats wonderfully and is delicious over spaghetti squash.
Yum yum yum that sounds delicious! So many delicious flavors mixed together 😀
