Stir Fry Sauce

  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce (or tamari)
  • 1/2 cup honey (or maple syrup)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoon sriracha
  • 2 teaspoon white rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon water
  • 3 teaspoons cornstarch

Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 large red pepper, sliced
  • 1.5 lbs broccoli, chopped into florets (~4 cups)
  • 2 tablespoon water


  1. Begin by prepping your chicken stir fry sauce. Place all ingredients (minus the cornstarch) for the sauce in a medium bowl or pyrex and whisk until combined. Set aside.
  2. Next, prep veggies by thinly slicing red pepper and chopping broccoli florets into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  3. Slice chicken breast into thin slices and set aside.
  4. Next, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan over medium/high heat. Add chicken breast and saute for about 5-7 minutes or until almost fully cooked. Remove from heat.
  5. Add the second tablespoon of olive oil into the pan and sautee veggies for about 2 minutes. Then, add in about 2 tablespoons of water and cover pan. Let steam for about 3-5 minutes or until broccoli is cooked, yet still a little crunchy.
  6. Once 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 sauce and whisk until dissolved.
  7. Add chicken pieces back into the pan and mix everything together. Let simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  8. Serve with your favorite grain or meal-prep for later!
